Transport Minister, Fikile Mbalula, says they have identified four possible suspects in the burning of 18 train carriages at Cape Town Station on Thursday morning.
He says no arrests have yet been made. Mbalula was addressing the media following an inspection of the burnt out carriages.
He says damage is estimated at R61-million. Mbalula says 213 coaches have been gutted at a cost of more than R640 million over the last five years.
Meanwhile, President of the Cape Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Geoff Jacobs, says business in the Cape Metro is suffering due to the failing rail infrastructure and the torching of trains.
Jacobs was reacting to Thursday morning’s incident. He adds that something needs to be done about the situation.
“The fires this morning are just another blow to workers who suffer daily trying to get to work using Metrorail trains, when and if trains do arrive they must sit if they are lucky or stand crushed like sardines in a tin; they arrive at work late often exhausted or unfit for the day’s work. Cape Town’s work force deserves better.”
People like to play with fire and destroy everything.

With just over an hour after unknown suspects fired several shots and robbed a business in the Bellville CBD where they took cellphones and other items, members of the Western Cape Flying Squad caught up with the suspects and arrested two early this morning. They recovered a vehicle, 17 cellphones as well as two firearms in Mfuleni.
Of the cellphones recovered, one belongs to a 42 year old off duty police officer who was shot dead in a robbery in Delft South earlier in the evening. In the robbery the policeman’s cellphone was taken.
He was a detective attached to Elsies River police.
Police investigations are yet to determine if the firearms seized are linked to the murder of the of the Elsies River detective.
Further investigations that are currently underway are looking into whether there were other suspects involved and all could be linked other serious crime incidents.
