CPUT guard suspects scorned security company involved in latest arson attack
This article has been updated.
Police have extinguished multiple acts of arson at CPUT's Bellville campus.
Fire and Rescue services were reportedly told that the situation was not safe to attend to.
It's reported at least five vehicles belonging to CPUT staff were set alight on campus.
EWN's Kevin Brandt says there are claims that a scorned private security company may have been involved in the incident.
A current security official has raised suspicions after he was allegedly interrogated this morning by the company whose service contract was terminated on the campus.
Meanwhile, CPUT students are being guarded by police and remain reluctant to speak about the incident.
Video footage and images emerged earlier on Twitter.
Two weeks ago, two buildings were torched overnight at the Belville campus and another at Cape Town campus.
University management opened a case of attempted murder after two guards were allegedly locked inside a burning building.
