The Federation of Unions of South Africa has added its voice to those condemning the hijacking and kidnapping of Passenger Rail Agency (Prasa) Board Chairperson Khanyisile Kweyama.
Transport minister, Blade Nzimande has asked for an urgent meeting with the PRASA Management and Board to discuss the incident during which the Railway Gagency’s Board Chair, Khanyisile Kweyama was hijacked last week near her home in Johannesburg.
Board chair of PRASA, Khanyisile Kweyama, says she is still shocked after being hijacked near her home in Houghton, north of Johannesburg.
Second senior Prasa member hijacked and later dumped, without being hurt in recent month.
The continuing decline in passenger rail investment is making it difficult for the rail industry to provide an efficient alternative transport to commuters.
