The Federation of Unions of South Africa (Fedusa) says it will go ahead with its campaign to have directors of some state-owned entities declared delinquent.
There has been mounting criticism over the management of SOEs like the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) and Eskom which have seen its executive boards come under fire for alleged mismanagement.
On Thursday, Former Prasa board chairperson Popo Molefe said he will seek legal action over a decision by Transport Minister Dipuo Peter’s to dissolve the parastatal’s board.

Most of the people that go into these state-owned enterprises go with the purpose of enriching themselves— Dennis George, General Secretary of Fedusa
The federation and our unions should approach our courts to have people like that being declared as delinquent directors— Dennis George, General Secretary of Fedusa
