The parliament was not in session during the incidents due to the holidays.

KDRTV understands that the House of Parliament in Cape Town is made of three sections; the oldest is dating back to 1884, the new section was built in the 1920s, and the house of the National Assembly was built in the 1980s.

Last year, a fire ravaged part of the University of Cape Town`s Library which is considered to be home to a unique collection of African archives.
