Just over a month ago, the Bongani Mountain Lodge, situated in Mpumalanga’s Mthethomusha Game Reserve, was burnt to the ground.
The reserve borders the Kruger National Park, and it was initially believed that the lodge was torched in retaliation for the suspected killing of an alleged poacher by the Mpumalanga Parks anti-poaching unit.
Thankfully, the lodge manager was tipped off that an attack may be imminent and managed to evacuate, along with the staff.
However, in the weeks that have followed, new information has come to light, casting doubt on the real reason behind the torching.
Carte Blanche was on the case this past Sunday:
It may seem counterintuitive to burn down the biggest source of employment in an area, but criticism is rife that the lodge did not do enough for its neighbours.
It was also said the arsonists sought revenge for the death of a suspected poacher who had lived in the community.
But as the police investigation reveals, it’s clear that all is not as it seems.
It rarely is.
There appear to be no winners here, but we’ll let Carte Blanche tell that story:
