Bloemfontein - The houses of two Ngwathe municipal officials were damaged in petrol bomb attacks in Parys, Free State police said on Monday.

Spokesperson Maseleka Langa said a petrol bomb was hurled at the house of a municipal employee at about 01:00 on Monday.

"A window was broken and curtains caught fire in the attack."

The house of a director at the municipality was also damaged with a petrol bomb, but the damage was less extensive. Part of the ceiling in a room was damaged.

No one had been arrested by Monday afternoon.

Two cases of malicious damage to property would be investigated.

Various senior officials of the embattled Free State municipality were being investigated for maladministration. The municipality’s workers embarked on a strike over salaries at the end of 2011.
