Accompanied by Prasa Administrator Bongisizwe Mpondo and Prasa Rail CEO Nosipho Damasane at Wolmerton station, Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula was on site to inspect trains and check their state of readiness ahead of resumption on Wednesday.

Prasa Rail had been shut down since lockdown like many other industries.

Minister said during a media briefing that cable theft still gives them a nightmare as it happens more often also with the fact that trains were not working, it became easier for cables to stolen.

Mbalula has however expressed that they are ready to work with law enforcement agencies to bring perpetrators to book to account to.

He also added that the stopping of trains meant that more revenue would be lost and there would also be delay in fixing the entity that has reportedly lost lot of money in irregular expenditure and corruption which was alleged at the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture.
