During the xenophobic riot near the Jeppestown Hostel on Thursday 23 April 2015 , our building at 44 Wolhuter st ,Jeppestown, was broken into and the goods on different floors set alight. There was extensive damage to the property as well the goods. Thereafter on the weekend the building was stripped of the steel doors, steel window frames, roller shutter and anything that could be sold for scrap. The building is completely open now. The people we suspect behind this crime is the nearby squatter camp residents who have been asking to rent our building but were refused on many occasions. They are now ready to hijack the building and build there shacks inside. We have a security company to safeguard the premises but I'm not sure how long they will manage to keep this criminal mob away. Anybody with any help or advice please let me know what I can do.
