“Montana’s response disappointing” - Madonsela
Public Protector Thuli Madonsela has expressed disappointment at the challenging of her findings into maladministration at the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA), by the parastatal’s former CEO Lucky Montana.
In a number of interviews yesterday, Montana stated that Madonsela’s Derailed report, which implicated him in a number of tender irregularities while at the head of PRASA, was “factually incorrect” and that he is prepared to take the matter to court.
“I am disappointed that he has changed his tone because he came and read the report in our office, and eventually took a copy,” Madonsela told the media shortly after delivering a keynote speech at the University of KwaZulu-Natal as part of Woman’s Month yesterday.
“In his letter he wrote to me, he said he was happy with the report. He had one or two things that he wished we could have handled differently. He undertook to comply with the findings and remedial actions... so I am surprised that he has taken a different tone.”
Concluding her report on Monday, Madonsela stated that remedial action needs to be taken by Transport Minister Dipuo Peters against Montana, and that appropriate measures against officials involved also needs implementing.
