MKMVA: Prasa's Molefe should be held liable for security guard's murder
Spokesperson Carl Niehaus says it was Molefe’s decisions which led to the revoke of some safety measures by train stations.
JOHANNESBURG – The Umkhonto weSizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA) says the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) board chairperson Popo Molefe should be held personally responsible for the murder of a security official during a protest at a train station in Nancefield, Soweto this week.
The African National Congress’ veteran militant wing says that Prasa has no direction under Molefe’s leadership and called upon the Transport Minister Joe Maswanganyi to dissolve it.
Spokesperson Carl Niehaus says that it was Molefe’s decisions which led to the revoking of some safety measures by train stations.
He says that the parastatal needs a more committed board.
“He should financially and criminally be kept responsible because it’s the decisions that he pushed through the board that the circumstances evolved that led, we believe, to the death of Mr Kwena.”
