Former Sanral CEO new Prasa chairman


Nazir Alli (pictured), former CEO of the South African National Roads Agency (Sanral), though perhaps best known for his previous role as the champion of the e-tolling system, has been announced as the new Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) chairman, taking over from Popo Molefe. This follows Transport Minister Dipuo Peters’ announcement last week of the dissolving of the rail agency's board.

Tiyani Rikhotso, former Transport spokesperson, and former general-secretary of the National Union of Minerworkers (NUM) have also been seconded to the interim board. The eight-member board furthermore includes Xolile George (South African Local Government Association), Constance Maleho (Department of Transport), Natalie Skeepers, Ronny Mkhwanazi, and a National Treasury representative.
