The Sunday Times reports that four executives of the Passenger Rail Agency Of South Africa (PRASA) who were fired recently have decided to challenge their dismissal in court.

PRASA CEO Nosipho Damasane

Nosipho Damasane, Hishaam Emerane, Tebogo Rakau and Sandile Dlamini were dismissed on grounds of incompetence and failing to impress during their probation term.

Some insiders from PRASA however revealed that the four were competent enough and came and put back trains at stations after PRASA had faced so many challenges.

The fired EXECUTIVES reportedly said their employment contracts were not subject to a probation period and this goes against reasons for their dismissal.


PRASA wrote letters of dismissal to the executives and ordered them to surrender company assets as they depart.

The four have reportedly talked with their lawyers and are expected to challenge their dismissals.
