Prasa board fired

The Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa’s board has been dissolved in parliament on Wednesday.

The board was briefing the parliamentary portfolio committee on transport on the status of Metrorail.

Since yesterday Members of Parliament had called for the board to be removed after it was hauled over the coals for being “corrupt” and their handling of former acting CEO Collins Letsoalo’s firing.

“We have been fired” said a board member in parliament.

This is a developing story.
