Prasa suspends senior managers
The company said the managers would face disciplinary action over demonstrations at its Hatfield offices.
JOHANNESBURG - The Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) says senior managers who demonstrated outside the Hatfield offices on yesterday have been suspended and face disciplinary action.
Dozens of employees held a briefing on the street outside Prasa's offices saying they were unhappy with the way the company is being run and disappointed that former CEO Lucky Montana was dismissed.
Prasa has now responded to some of these grievances, saying Montana was never dismissed, insisting he had resigned and the board relieved him of his duties early.
The company's Sipho Sithole said they have taken a strong stance against the demonstration.
"This event involved senior managers, [from] whom we expect nothing else but strict discipline and upholding the code of conduct, doing the exact opposite and actually causing disruption. It is one thing that Prasa has taken a strong view [against]."
