Woman appears in court after passenger bus set alight

File


A 24-year-old woman made a briefing appearance in court in Gqeberha on Monday in connection with the fire that engulfed a passenger bus earlier this month.

Police spokesperson, Colonel Priscilla Naidu, said Yamkela Mahobe, faces a charge of malicious damage to property.

She was arrested in Willowvale last week after police received a tip that she was at her mother's house.

Mahobe was wanted by the police after a blaze destroyed an Eagle Liner coach, causing damage estimated at R3.2 million.

Police said at the time that she was apparently involved in a dispute with the company over a cell phone.

Naidu said Mahobe will be back in the dock again on Tuesday.
