Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa Chairperson Popo Molefe says he has paid back more than R600 000 that he received for attending board meetings, because it was ‘the right thing to do’.

He also says allegations that he tried to increase the number of board meetings to make more money are untrue because his board members only asked for extra money this year, after working overtime for several previous years.

The Transport Department says PRASA's board met more often than it should have and it was unhappy with the extra costs.
