prasaANA reports that the Federation of Unions of SA (Fedusa) and the United National Transport Union (Untu), its passenger rail sector affiliate, have expressed outrage at the appointment of Cromet Molepo as acting CEO of the Passenger Rail Agency of SA (Prasa).  

They have called on the Public Protector to investigate.  Molepo replaced former acting CEO Lindikhaya Zide, whose six-month contract lapsed in September.  Zide had replaced controversial acting CEO Collins Letsoalo.  “The board should immediately release the criteria they followed in appointing Molepo and the names of other candidates they considered and how they decided who was the most suitable candidate.  This is yet another political appointment and South Africa has already seen too many political appointments at state-owned enterprises, to the detriment of the taxpayer,” Untu’s Steve Harris said on Sunday.
