Alleged arsonist Relebohile Mbele (22) of Bohlokong in Bethlehem is set to reappear in the Bethlehem Magistrate’s Court today (20/09).

Mbele is charged with arson after allegedly torching the shack dwelling of a former lover in Vuka Location earlier this month.

Capt. Zweli Mohobeleli, Bethlehem police cluster spokesperson, says the fire destroyed all the belongings, clothes and furniture of the ex-boyfriend.

He says an investigation is underway to establish what had prompted the accused to burn the dwelling.

Mohobeleli says the suspect has been kept in custody since her arrest earlier this month.
