The African National Congress (ANC) is saddened by the tragic loss of life as a result of a fire that engulfed a building in the Johannesburg CBD this morning.

We urge relevant authorities to investigate the cause of this tragedy thoroughly to ensure that this tragedy does not recur. We urge the City of Johannesburg to pay focused attention to the safety of inner-city buildings, including illegal occupation, to prevent similar humanitarian tragedies in future.

We urge law enforcement agencies to ensure that those responsible for this tragedy are held accountable.

The ANC conveys its condolences to families and friends who have lost their loved ones. We wish the injured a speedy recovery. We urge our structures in Johannesburg, working together with government agencies and NGOs, to do whatever it takes to lend a hand to those in distress.
