Johannesburg - Sasolburg's community radio station Karabo FM has been burnt down in an apparent arson attack, board chairperson Sam Mkhwanazi said on Sunday.

"Two armed men covering their faces went into the studio carrying 25 litres of petrol. They sprinkled it around and set the place alight on Saturday night," he said.

He said the two ordered the presenter out of the studio before setting the building on fire at 21:00.

"We do not know why the burned [down] the station. The whole building had been destroyed. Our hard work of five years was destroyed in two minutes."

He said the station had a normal relationship with residents in Sasolburg and he could not understand why people opted to burn it down.

"People loved the station, it is a great loss to us," he said.

Free State police were not immediately available for comment.

Someone was clearly p*s**d off at the station. Nice to see they did not burn the presenter too. Normally, in South Africa, a place gets burned down WITH the occupants inside.

Does not compute.
