JOHANNESBURG - The Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa's acting CEO Nathi Khena says he hopes the Public Protector's report on the rail agency will only bring up limited issues when it comes out on Monday.

Advocate Thuli Madonsela has been probing claims of financial mismanagement and tender and appointment irregularities.

Prasa says it implementing a clean-up strategy and dealing with what it calls several unruly employees.

Khena says they will deal with the Public Protector's report once it has been release.

"I hope there will be a few issues that we will have to deal with coming out of that; from the board to the ex-co-members, we will deal with those issues appropriately."

He says they are on track with the modernisation programme and plans to clean up operations.

Khena says it's unfortunate that some employees held an unofficial briefing this week, trying to portray that all employees are unhappy.

He says this isn't the case and seven senior managers have since been suspended.
