“He was stopped for not wearing a mask, which escalated into a physical and verbal spat with the police. They brought him in because they suspected he was intoxicated,” said Nthoiwa.

He said upon his release in the morning, he called his family, went out and drained petrol from one of the cars, dowsed the office and set it on fire.
