“Such incidents undermine the spirit of our democracy and the freedom of political parties to campaign without fear of intimidation. The Democratic Alliance hopes the perpetrators of this alleged crime will be caught and prosecuted in terms of the law,” DA spokesman Mmusi Maimane said.
According to the Democratic Alliance spokesman, a bottle filled with chemicals was planted in the building. The bottle caught fire and exploded. Mthembu said the ANC is confident that it was arson as the chemicals can still be detected in the building. Allegedly, the bomb squad and police have already confirmed that it was an arson attempt.
“In a country where constitutional freedoms have been achieved through great sacrifice, we cannot allow such actions to take us back to a place of fear or intolerance,” Maimane spoke for the ANC.
