CAPE TOWN - The City of Cape Town claims to have evidence to prove the Ses'khona People's Rights Movement encouraged a group of Kraaifontein residents to burn down a local community hall.

The City's JP Smith says they have been given information from members of the public regarding the involvement of the Ses'khona movement.

"We have information from the members of the public who have given information on what was said, and we're able to produce video evidence of Andile Lili on site involved in discussions.
