Prasa to blame for accidents
It’s become a norm rather than an exception for Metrorail trains to be involved in fatal crashes.
The numerous incidents involving fatalities and severe injuries have become intolerable and unacceptable.
Under the guardianship of the Passenger Rail Agency of SA, Metrorail has proven that there is little or no regard for rail passengers’ safety.
Failure in the network’s security system contributes to vandalism, cable theft, train delays and unsafe conditions for train commuters.
Management cannot wash its hands off the responsibility for the poor state of the railway service, blaming every incident on cable theft.
It is, in fact, the gross mismanagement at Prasa that has led to a complete breakdown of the passenger rail system and service.
