- Public Works Minister Thulas Nxesi suspects there are 'state capture forces' behind the recent arson attempts in Pretoria
- There have been 2 alleged arson attempts at the Health Department's national office during the past week
- Nxesi is convinced the arson attempts and the fire at Johannesburg's Health Department building are not coincidental
There have been alleged acts of arson at the Health Department's national office situated in Pretoria lately.
According to Public Works Minister Thulas Nxesi, these arson acts were committed by 'state capture forces'.
In the past week alone, there were 2 arson attempts at the Health Department office, according to a report by EWN.
Nxesi doesn't think the fires that happened at the Civitas Building and the Health Department's office in Johannesburg are coincidental.
“We are bound to suspect a hidden agenda. Are we witnessing new tactics led by state capture forces that Minister Gordhan talked about?
Aaron Motsoaledi, South Africa's Health Minister did not back up Nxesi's claims. He simply said he has nothing to say about the matter.
The incidents have since been reported to the police.
The Civitas Building houses the national offices of the Health Department and is also reported to be a health risk.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that workers have protested against the horrible conditions they are forced to work in.
No one could deny that the Civitas building is badly neglected and not maintained like it should be:
