Axed PRASA CEO throws brick at journalist
A journalist from Afrikaans newspaper Rapport has opened a criminal case against axed Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA) CEO Lucky Montana, who reportedly hurled a brick at him yesterday evening.
According to News24, Pieter-Louis Myburgh had been conducting an investigation into a property owned by Montana in Pretoria, when he noticed the former rail service provider boss entering the building with another a man.
“He [Montana] made a gesture with his fingers indicating 'I see you'. I took it as a bit of a threatening gesture,” Myburgh was quoted as saying.
Turning his vehicle around outside the property, Myburgh then reportedly asked someone outside if he could speak with Montana.
“They called him and I waited. It took a while. About a moment or two later Mr Montana came out with a brick in his hand. My passenger window was open. I asked him 'can’t we talk?', but I was already moving”.
Myburgh alleged that Montana then hurled the brick at his vehicle, nearly causing him to have an accident as he sped off.
“I’m appalled by the behaviour of an individual who, until recently, was leading an important state-owned company. It’s absolutely staggering,” Myburgh said.
Montana, who was fired last month for contravening an agreement not to sign tenders and making comments about certain board members, failed to respond when asked for comment.
