BY CHARL BOSCH - JULY 17, 2015

The secluded press conference of the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA) on the firing of its CEO Lucky Montana yesterday, has abruptly been cancelled some 15 minutes after it was due to start today.

According to social media report, Acting PRASA Spokesperson and Group Strategy Officer, Sipho Sithole, informed journalist that, following a meeting with the Minister and board members, it was decided that the issuing of a press statement was sufficient, and that no further information needs to be given.

It is however speculated that the rail operator is awaiting the outcome of a similar briefing held by Montana at 14h00 this afternoon, before commenting.
