EVEN though the Rail En­force­ment Unit was launched two weeks ago by Trans­port Min­is­ter Blade Nz­i­mande, Pub­lic Pro­tec­tor Bu­sisiwe Mkhwe­bane has said she is forg­ing ahead with her Metrorail in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Spokesper­son Oupa Se­galwe said the probe is “still in its early stages”.

Trans­port com­mit­tee chair­per­son Nceba Hi­nana said: “The scope of the pub­lic pro­tec­tor must cover as­pects that con­front the Pas­sen­ger Rail Agency of SA, like the con­tri­bu­tion of not hav­ing a per­ma­nent board had on its per­for­mance.”

He said the re­sults of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion were awaited with an­tic­i­pa­tion. “Van­dal­ism, train de­lays, theft of ca­bles will never stop un­til Prasa pri­ori­tises se­cu­rity of its in­fra­struc­ture and safety of com­muters.”
