The FF Plus will study the Public Protector’s report on the irregularities at Prasa and will lay a criminal complaint with the Hawks if it appears that the law had been broken in some instances, Adv. Anton Alberts, the FF Plus’ parliamentary spokesperson on Transport said.

In her report titled ‘Derailed’ which was presented this afternoon, the PP. Ms. Thuli Madonsela expressed her doubts about every contract of more than R10 million that Prasa had awarded under the leadership of Lucky Montana as Group CEO of Prasa, since 2012.

She requested a forensic investigation into all of these transactions and recommends disciplinary action be taken against Montana and other senior officials at Prasa over the awarding of the tenders which amount to more than R2 billion.

Adv. Alberts says the FF Plus is satisfied with the investigation and recommendations as it appears that the PP had done a thorough investigation.

“It is clear that Montana had ruled Prasa like the ANC is governing South Africa where friends and cadres are favoured and where corruption is the order of the day. It appears that corruption had taken place and if so, the Hawks will be asked to intervene,” Adv. Alberts said.
