Molefe to seek re-recourse following the dissolving of Prasa board!

Seeking court re-course. Prasa board chairman Popo Molefe says he was not informed on the decision by the Minister thus would seek re-course following the dissolve of the board.

This follows reports that the entire board has been dissolved on Wednesday by Minister of Transport Dipou Peters.

“Prior to the reports the Minister had requested the Board to submit a report relating to the irregular salary increment of Collins Letsoalo whom she had seconded to Prasa from the Department of Transport.

We had submitted the report as requested. To date‚ we are yet to receive a response from the Minister. It therefore comes as a surprise to us that the Minister would have taken such a decision without notice to members of the Board nor followed due process.

“I believe that the decision of the Minister is reviewable and hereby give notice that I will seek re-course in the courts.”

The former Premier of North West, Molefe responded that the Minister’s action “imperils ongoing investigations into R14 billion of irregular expenditure; actions taken by this Board in the courts to recoup losses up to R7 billion; criminal investigations that involve suspected corruption‚ fraud and money laundering that involves several billions of Rand; and the turn-around in Prasa operations.”

He said the action impugned his reputation and dignity. “I am considering my options in this regard.”

The chairperson of the Portfolio Committee on Transport ‚ Dikeledi Magadzi‚ said the resolution was not taken lightly by the committee.

“After two days of deliberations‚ the Committee still did not have a sense of whether Prasa will be saved. It is important that Prasa works if we are to grow the economy and deliver on the mandate to get poor South Africans to work‚” Magadzi said.
