Ndabeni-Abrahams house goes up in flames
The police and fire experts are investigating a mystery fire that burnt down Minister of Communications Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams’ house in Marhambeni locality, Chris Hani Park in Mthatha on Sunday morning.
It is alleged that two men in their 30s who stay in the house saw flames coming from the garage and it quickly spread into the double-storey house. Firefighters were summoned to the scene but the fire had covered the whole house despite attempts by neighbours to put it out. A stack of furniture stored just outside the garage of the house appeared to have caught fire first.
No one was injured according to Brigadier Tembinkosi Kinana, spokesperson for the police.
