On behalf of the Democratic Alliance, I would like to extend our sincerest condolences to all the individuals and families affected by the horrific fire in Inner City Johannesburg that has taken over 50 lives so far and devastated many more.

This is a catastrophe for our nation, causing unimaginable pain and suffering to innocent people.

The DA mourns this tragic loss and we pray that emergency services in Johannesburg will work swiftly to prevent any further loss of life, and to bring comfort to those affected by this tragedy.

The DA’s public representatives in Johannesburg will be on the ground do what we can to assist those affected, and we will continue to push for safer living conditions and the provision of adequate housing for inner city residents.

Now is the time for South Africans to stand together for better and safer living conditions for all.
