‘South Africa truly run by idiots’

Alleged ANC corruption in Prasa must be criminally investigated

South African government railways officials imported brand new locomotives from Europe worth R600 million rand despite explicit warnings from consutlants, engineers and specialists that the trains are not suited for our local railway lines.

It is now the country’s largest and most expensive tender blunder the country has ever seen. Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) has to date, received thirteen new diesel locomotives that are too high for the long distance routes they were intended for, which are now rendered useless for local use.

Senior railways engineers and sources with first hand knowledge of the issue told reporters that Prasa had been warned time and time again that the new diesel locomotives it ordered from Spanish manufacturer Vossloh España are too tall for local use.

The locomotives exceed the height restrictions for diesel locomotives on the long distance lines Prasa intended using them on.
