The chaos in the ‘new’ South Africa is getting worse by the day. The new Transport Minister, Fikile Mbalula, has just announced that more than 1,000 train crashes took place in 2018.
The “good” news is that it was only 2% more than in 2017. According to Mbalula, it records a grim picture of the safety record of the rail transport industry.
Prasa immediately jumped on the track and blamed the obsolete infrastructure. said acting chief Nkosinathi Sishi.
In 1994, the ANC government received a functional rail system on a tray from the NP that handled transport across the country.
In nearly 30 years, no maintenance or improvements have apparently been made. The money that was intended for this was apparently just disappeared, said a former railroad expert.
There is also the possibility that it was spent in ways that could only be explained by Prasa and Transnet or Spoornet.
Fikile admits that Prasa is riddled with corruption, lack of leadership and wastage of public funds.
Political observers say this is a remarkable recognition of the ANC’s failed 30 years of government!
Mbalula promised that he would fix Prasa within 100 days because his name is Mr Fix.https://newsoweto.co.za/prasa-corruption-chaos-in-the-new-south-africa-getting-worse-by-the-day/https://newsoweto.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/Fikile.jpghttps://newsoweto.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/Fikile-150x150.jpgFeatured
