PRASA Chairperson to brief media on Public Protector report

BY CHARL BOSCH - SEPTEMBER 3, 2015

Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA) Board Chairperson, Popo Molefe, is reportedly expected to address the media later today on the findings of Public Protector Thuli Madonsela.

Last week, Madonsela’s 550 page report, titled Derailed, listed 32 complaints of alleged financial maladministration against the rail parastatal with 19 being identified as sustained. A second report is expected to be tabled within the next six months.

The report also found that a number of the sustained claims involved former CEO Lucky Montana, who was fired last month for tender irregularities and making comments about certain board members. Montana has since indicated that the matter would be going to court after describing the findings as “baseless”.
