Durban - The Mangosuthu University of Technology is investigating an incident of vandalism after six buses belonging to the Gcaba brothers were torched on Friday night.

The Gcaba’s have close links to President Jacob Zuma and are well established in the taxi and transport industry.

MUT spokesperson Zwelakhe Shangase said that the motive for the attack was unclear.

"The university has been locked in meetings with the service provider to come up with a solution. On Friday night, six buses that were parked outside the Faculty of Natural Sciences campus were burnt," he said.  

He said that the buses were normally parked outside the Natural Sciences campus to cater for the morning rush of students.

"Management is urging any persons with information to come forward and shed light on this unfortunate situation. The owners of the buses, the Gcaba brothers, have assured the institution that the service to ferry students to and from campus will not be disrupted."

"The service provider has assured the institution and its students that there are additional buses that will be made available due to the unfortunate incident," he said.
