I hope President Cyril Ramaphosa is paying attention to the fact that more trains have been set alight at Cape Town Station, a mere few days after he was there to launch the new trains.
Five carriages from two train sets were burned.
While supposedly fire-proof, the new, high-tec trains weren’t targeted by Sunday’s fire.
I say targeted, because trains don’t spontaneously combust!
I am now totally convinced that these fires are arson.
The question is just who would have a motive to systematically destroy Cape Town’s trains?
And who is close enough to quickly go start a fire and then make a quick escape every time?
These are all questions the police have to urgently look into.
Commuters who came to catch a train on Sunday were forced to use taxis on the station deck, which is luckily only a few metres away.
