South Africa: Inkatha Freedom Party Sympathises With Families That Lost Their Homes in St Francis Bay Fire

press release

The IFP is deeply saddened by the fire that destroyed 76 homes in St Francis Bay in the Eastern Cape.

IFP Spokesperson on Human Settlements, Mr. Petros Sithole MP said, "We would like to convey our deepest sympathies to the families that lost their homes in the fire. We know this is tragic because their homes and belongings were destroyed by the fire and have been left with no place to stay."

The IFP hopes that the families are placed in a temporary place in the meantime and that the insurance companies will move swiftly to help rebuild and restore the gutted homes.

"Those responsible for the fire must be charged and efforts must be made to ensure that the rebuilt houses are not as easily susceptible to fire as those that burnt down" said Sithole.
