Six broken windows and a sign was damaged after a man hurled stones at the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa building on Monday night

"[We] are shocked and devastated by this latest attack on our head office, which is a property built on workers meagre wages," Numsa spokesman Castro Ngobese said in a statement condemning the attack.

According to Warrant Officer Xoli Mbele, a man was seen throwing stones at the National Union of Metalworkers of SA (Numsa) building at 2am on Monday, said

"The security guards tried to chase him, but he got away," he said, adding that a case of malicious damage to property was being investigated.

Last year, computers were stolen from the building on more than one occasion by "well-dressed young men", and a Numsa-owned car was stolen outside the building.
