He would appear in the Zeerust Magistrate's Court on Monday to face charges of arson.

    Seems violence now days is the order of the day. We see it everyday on the tv, children are often herdered up and sent to join strikes where they burn trash loot etc, so, it is becoming inbred.

    What a frustrated person. Bet he will say he was abused as a child.
