This is according to tweets posted by EyeWitness News on Tuesday (21 January), confirmed by die Beeld newspaper.

According to reports, Sanral’s offices in Samrand, Midrand, were evacuated as a safety precaution, after the substance was found. The substance has reportedly been taken in for testing.

No injuries were reported, while Tshwane Emergency Services as well as the South African Police Service (SAPS) were on the scene.
