The 30-year-old has now been referred for extended mental assessment.

Two platforms and 12 carriages were damaged in train fires over the Easter weekend.

Xoseni has been arrested for torching two train sets at and will likely face charges for malicious damage to property.

More than half the Metrorail fleet has been lost in train fires, adding to the woes of an already overburdened public transport system

Xoseni has been remanded to the hospital section at Pollsmoor Prison until a bed becomes available at a psychiatric facility for 30 days observation.
