The City of Cape Town says it will work with other arms of the government to arrest those responsible for recent train fires.
Three train carriages were set alight at Cape Town train station on Saturday night.
This comes just a week after 11 carriages were set ablaze, costing Prasa an estimated R50 million in damages.
Brett Herron‚ Cape Town's MEC for transport, says, “We don’t have any lead about the recent fires that could lead to an arrest or prosecution. Clearly, there’s a well-orchestrated programme or campaign to totally destroy our rail system. In the last week, we’ve had three fires.”
Meanwhile, Transport Minister Blade Nzimande says those who have damaged trains in Cape Town will be brought to book.
A special task team comprising the South African Police Service, local and national government and the National Prosecuting Authority will conclude its investigations by the end of July.
On 26 July, a fire at the Retreat Station is estimated to have cost Prasa R20 million.
