Western Cape MEC of Transport and Public Works Donald Grant said on Monday that the vandalism which happened on Metrorail last week which resulted in services between Nyanga and Khayelitsha being shut down was deliberate. 
MEC Grant said the provincial government condemns these acts of vandalism and sabotage. 

He added that this does not only threaten commuters’ ability to commute safely but also cripples the economy while costing billions of Rands. 
Ministerial Spokesperson Sipheshile Dube said our replacement costs are escalating beyond our control, these are monies we could be using to improve our service and upgrade our assets.

“Closing the central lines in the Western Cape or even the Vereeniging line in Gauteng may be the only solution to this pandemic Dube added.
