Fikile Mbalula is set to launch the PRASA Ministerial Security Plan tomorrow, which involves other government departments in the justice, safety and security cluster.
Minister of Transport, Fikile Mbalula is preparing to launch the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA) Ministerial Security Plan, according to a statement on Tuesday, 15 September 2020. The plan is in light of the escalating problem of train stations, which have been abandoned during the lockdown period, facing vandalism and the looting of metal. Before the release of the statement by the minister, his spokesperson, Ayanda Allie-Paine, confirmed on Monday, 14 September 2020, that a plan of action was being worked on.
The launch is scheduled for 10:00 on Wednesday, 16 September 2020, at Rhodesfield Station, Kempton Park. The statement also reveals that 3 100 PRASA security personnel have been hired as part of the plan.
