The man arrested in connection with arguably the country’s most devastating fire will apply for bail when next he appears in court on the 11th of January.
Parliament has been gutted, with damage estimated to run into millions of rands.
But there are so still many questions.
Among them is the breach of security, and even if the right man has been arrested.
Here are some of the reactions from tweeps:
Minister De Lille confirmed the CCTV cameras were working Sunday morning. We would like to see video evidence of Zandile Mafe in the parliament precinct and also starting the fire that destroyed parliament. Something doesn’t add up here and we can’t keep quiet. pic.twitter.com/Sm59FWgKy1

If they say this man, Zandile Mafe knew Parliament Protection officers were not on duty, that nobody was monitoring CCTV cameras, knew water sprinklers were turned off, then the man must be appointed head of Parliamentary Protection Services or Intelligence Operative. Klaar!! pic.twitter.com/pQChkzGvXa

This government is totally against black people, why would Zandile Mafe even bother to destroy that parliament?? To benefit what exactly??
1. How can a person walk such a long distance without being recognized
2. Start a fire
3. Then hangs around the area
Make it make sense!!

They probably woke Buti Zandile Mafe feeling sorry for him that he might be affected by fire inside Parliament, on second thought they thought why not qualify him as a suspect because he looks suspicious.😭 of course being homeless u”ll look everything.
I’m heartbroken and angry pic.twitter.com/XYOAlWJOVW

If it is anything that has to do with singer Kelly Khumalo, then you probably know how people are most likely going to react, there is a lot that has been questioned about Kelly.

Kelly did things that have led to some of the discussions happening about her right now, and it might be a new year, but there are people who do not intend on letting her off the hook. Learn more
