One arrested for torched Brandfort clinic

One person has been arrested in connection with the torching of a clinic in the Free State town of Brandfort on Saturday (August 3).

Free State police spokesperson, Sinah Mphakane says a case of arson has been registered. This comes after Majwemasweu residents found the Vaalrock clinic engulfed in flames on Saturday morning at around 05:00 am. Ward Councillor, Tihedi Moahi spoke to OFM News’ Isaac Mosia on the incident telling him there were suspicions there had been a break in at the healthcare facility prior to fire starting up, because one of the entrances were open. The cause of the fire is yet to be determined. A forensic report is expected to be released on Monday.
