metrorail thumb medium90 92ANA reports that Metrorail Gauteng has condemned an attack on four staff members at Pretoria Station on Wednesday evening.  

A train driver, train guard, security guard and a customer service official were attacked by a group of angry train commuters who also stoned the windscreens of trains servicing the Mamelodi Corridor route.  “This is totally unacceptable and I want to assure both staff and commuters that the company has already started to work with law enforcement agencies to ensure that those responsible are brought to book,” Metrorail Gauteng acting provincial manager Goodman Matampi said.  He added that Metrorail would not leave any stone unturned until the perpetrators were behind bars.  Metrorail said increasing attacks on its staff and trains were undermining efforts to improve its commuter rail service in Gauteng province.
