SEBOKENG - The SAPS says a second Sebokeng school in the past two weeks was set alight early this morning, as pupils across the country prepared to begin the new academic year today. An administration block at Khutlo Tharo Secondary School was reportedly torched during the early hours of this morning. Gauteng education MEC Panyaza Lesufi posted images of firefighters containing the blaze. Police spokesperson Brigadier Mathapelo Peters said it was the caretaker at the school who alerted the police of the fire. He said they were alerted after 3am but they don't know what time the fire started. According to Peters, there was no one at the school when the fire started and the caretaker said he was also alerted by someone.No injuries were reported. This comes after four classrooms, learning material and stock worth an estimated R4m were reduced to ashes in the blaze at Tokelo High School in the Vaal two weeks ago.
