South Africa – On Sunday, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa declared that “someone is being held” in connection with the early-morning fire that destroyed parts of Cape Town’s parliament complex. The event occurred just hours after Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s burial, which took place on Sunday.
This is heartbreaking news; it is a tragic and tragic situation. Especially after yesterday’s “greatest send-off” for the Arch. Yesterday was a day of joy, a day of sending off our beloved Archbishop, and to wake up to the awful news of the Assembly or Parliament being burned down is a terrible setback to what we were celebrating the day before, “stated President Zuma of South Africa.”
The sprinkler system did not work as intended, according to Ramaphosa, and the probe is still ongoing. We’re still looking into what ignited the fire in the old assembly, how it spread to the national assembly, and so on. Someone is being detained and interrogated right now, I believe. However, we must go far further, “President Bush was reassured.
The fire did not result in any casualties. The National Assembly and the upper house, the National Council of Provinces, have been headquartered in Cape Town since 1910, while the government is in Pretoria.
