metrorail thumb medium90 92News24 reports that the Western Cape government is offering a R100,000 reward for information that could lead to the arrest and conviction of whoever is burning trains in Cape Town.  

"The R100 000 reward we are making available is our warning to these arsonists: You are being watched, you will be caught and we will not allow you to derail this province," said Dan Plato, the MEC for Community Safety in the province on Sunday.  Thirty-two coaches were reportedly damaged by arson in July alone.  Premier Helen Zille said the attacks were sabotaging freedom of movement, leaving a serious knock-on effect to the province's economy and productivity.  The Western Cape government has contributed R16m to improve Metrorail’s security, while the city is also training 100 extra security officers to guard trains and rail infrastructure.
