It's not acceptable. It's pure criminality. We really need some help.Bronwen Dyke-Beyer, Spokesperson - Golden Arrow
People know things. People know who did this, and we are just begging for somebody to come forward.Bronwen Dyke-Beyer, Spokesperson - Golden Arrow
We lost three buses that were completely gutted this morning. There was an attempt on a fourth bus, but fortunately, we had company officials extinguish the fire.Bronwen Dyke-Beyer, Spokesperson - Golden Arrow
For us, the biggest concern is not the monetary value of the bus. It's the fact that people's lives are disrupted. People could be very badly hurt. Our matrics are writing exams.Bronwen Dyke-Beyer, Spokesperson - Golden Arrow
