Delays and bribes at OR Tambo
MY FAMILY were en route to Mecca via Egypt Air on December 16 last year. Some family members were intentionally delayed by OR Tambo officials wanting a bribe, which resulted in them missing the flight.
The case was reported and we have a case number. Statements were taken by police and there’s CCTV footage showing officials trying to elicit a bribe.
We received a small refund from the travel agent, but we’ve lost out on a lot of money thus far and have had no ticket refund as yet.
We’re losing hope and are totally frustrated!
The matter was dealt with internally and disciplinary action was taken, but why should we have to absorb the cost of corruption at the airport? We’ve lost about R23 000 and cannot afford lawyers.
Do you perhaps know how we can recover our loss? Ahmed Jada
