Prasa chair axed

Cape Town – The Ministry of Transport has announced that Leonard Ramatlakane has been relieved of his duties as a Board Member and Chairperson of the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa).

The decision was made after an investigation revealed that Ramatlakane misused one of Prasa’s properties in Cape Town without following proper procedures.

In a statement, Transport Minister Sindisiwe Chikunga acknowledged Ramatlakane’s contribution to Prasa’s Rail Recovery Programme, which successfully recovered 13 rail lines, surpassing the initial target of 10.

“This exceeded the target of 10 rail lines that were initially earmarked by Prasa for recovery. It is under Ramatlakane’s watch that Prasa was able to restore a sizable number of Prasa Rail services in various metros in the country, which has ensured that Prasa Rail reclaims its status as a mass mover of commuters in the Republic,” Chikunga said.

Chikunga emphasised the importance of clean administration and governance within the ministry’s entities.

The Rail Recovery Programme was established in response to vandalism of rail lines and stations during the lockdown period.
