It remains unclear who burnt the bus at the station on Racecourse Road between Koeberg and Omuramba Road.

Spokesperson for the City of Cape Town traffic services Richard Coleman confirmed that a MyCiTi bus was set alight around 5:30 am at a bus station on Racecourse Road in the Tableview area.

The service has been terminated in the area due to this incident meaning there are no buses running at the moment.

Coleman says it's still unclear who burnt the bus but the police are on the scene to control the situation.
