Police in Mpumalanga are looking for suspect(s) who burned down a school at Uthingo Park, Witbank. It is alleged that around 03:30 on 12 March 2019, some community members from the area saw the school on fire and alerted the Fire Department, who responded and managed to extinguish the fire.

However, the Administration Block, including the Principal’s office were severely burnt. It is suspected that the suspect(s) may have used an inflammable substance as an empty container was found on the scene.
