prasaBusinessLive reports that the troubled Passenger Rail Agency of SA (Prasa) is set to have a permanent CEO by April, transport minister Blade Nzimande has confirmed.  

Prasa, which has previously been afflicted by tender irregularities and supply-chain management issues, currently has an interim CEO and board, which have been tasked with turning the organisation around.  The agency, which is responsible for delivering rail services, has over the years been engulfed in allegations of corruption and mismanagement.  In a written reply to a parliamentary question published last week, Nzimande said:  “The process being undertaken to identify a suitable group CEO will be through an open and transparent process of recruitment that would be undertaken through the recruitment policy of Prasa.  This process will be undertaken through the position being advertised and the board overseeing the recruitment and selection process.”  Nzimande has been on a drive to address the dysfunction at some of the entities that report to him, particularly Prasa and the cash-strapped Road Accident Fund (RAF).
