#CityHallfire: Case against 9 municipal workers postponed to next month


Nine people who were arrested in connection with the municipal strike in Bloemfontein last week are expected to appear in the local Magistrate’s Court again on July 21.

The suspects briefly appeared in court today where the case got postponed for further investigation.

They were released on bail of R400 each on Friday evening. Their bail conditions were also extended.

Three other municipal workers Nthateng Jantjiem, Vincent Tsoametsi and Mbuyiselo Magoithane have already appeared in court and were granted bail of R1000 each.

The suspects face charges of contravention of a court order as well as public violence following clashes with police during the strike action on Wednesday and Thursday.
