Johannesburg’s Killarney Mall has been given the all-clear, after it was evacuated on Saturday due to a bomb scare.
People rushed out to allow for the Bomb Squad to sweep the building.
The mall management confirmed the incident and followed all safety protocols, including contacting the Bomb Squad and evacuating the mall.
“The safety of our shoppers, tenants and mall staff is of utmost importance to us. The mall will reopen only when we have been advised that it is safe to do so. Thank you for your patience and support,” said management in a statement.
