Probe into Prasa’s problems continues
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.”
