Four people arrested for damaging nine vehicles at Naledi station

Angry commuters at Naledi train station in Soweto damaged and vandalised nine vehicles belonging to Metrorail and Prasa employees.

Soweto Saps spokesperson Kay Makhubele says the commuters got angry after the train did not arrive on time, moved to the parking lot where they started pelting the vehicles with stones and torched at least one car.

Makhubele says the trains were delayed because of cable theft between Dube and Naledi stations.

He says Metrorail is currently trying to resolve the issue but the police are also monitoring the situation.

Four suspects were arrested for malicious damage to property and we are continuing to monitor the situation.

Kay Makhubele, Soweto Saps spokesperson

We are saying the people who are damaging the property of the state they must know that we will search for them and arrest them.

Kay Makhubele, Soweto Saps spokesperson
