Books, stationery burnt at Limpopo school
Johannesburg - Books and stationery were burnt in a suspected arson attack at a high school in Matlala on Wednesday morning, Limpopo police said.
"We really don't know yet if it was pupils, teachers or someone else who burnt the supplies - we are investigating," said Lieutenant Colonel Mohale Ramatseba.
The materials were burnt early in the morning in the staff room of BK Matlala High School causing estimated damage of R60 000.
No arrests had been made by noon.
No-one had been arrested for a similar crime at the school on opening day last year, where R360 000 worth of damage was caused by a fire in the library.
Ramatseba urged anyone with information on these crimes to contact the police.
The Limpopo education department could not immediately comment.
