A police bomb squad swept the evacuated building of the Gauteng department of human settlements yesterday, following a bomb scare.
Spokesperson Motsamai Motlhaolwa said the evacuation and sweeping of the premises followed a tip-off by the police of a bomb in the Home Affairs building.
The building is situated in the Joburg central business district.
MEC Jacob Mamabolo said the police were handling the matter and called on employees to remain calm. – ANA
