This, News24 reports, after the National Education, Health & Allied Workers’ Union told its members on the parliamentary staff not to return to work at the precinct until it was declared safe to do so. Meanwhile GOOD party secretary-general, Brett Herron, has said that instead of spreading conspiracy theories, politicians can do something constructive in the aftermath of the fire by ensuring that the Critical Infrastructure Protection Act, which President Cyril Ramaphosa assented to in 2019, is implemented.
