The Public Transport Voice and
the Right2Know Campaign is highly disappointed at Metrorail’s unjust decision
to postpone a meeting that was scheduled for Friday without a decency to inform
Cape Metrorail Regional
Manager, Richard Walker was set to meet them on Friday to discuss issues of
safety, accountability and the reliability of trains in the region.
According to Walker’s personal
assistant, walker had to attend an urgent board meeting in Gauteng. PTV’s spokesperson Zingisani Nkanjeni said we have
wrote a letter to the Minister of Transport to intervene on problems that Prasa
is sitting with.
Nkanjeni said they have never
had any formal response from the Minister and believe that really there is no
political will in terms of addressing these problems.
“’We continue to see the
problems that we are sitting with today”, Nkanjeni concluded.
