An expose written by, News24 investigative reporter Pieter-Louis Myburgh states that the Spanish manufacturer of Prasa's controversial Afro4000 locomotives failed to disclose payments of over R75 million, that was made to a former colleague and friend of Lucky Montana.
Montana is PRASA's former CEO, and the money was apprently given to Makhensa Mabunda.
The manufactures didn't not make these payments known after National Treasury asked the European rail company about its financial ties with local subcontractors and partners.
Myburgh says very clear, red flags were raised for him while investigating the story. He adds that they have reported on similar payments made in the past.
Now we have for the first time, indications that Vossloh España itself also made payments to South African entities that has raised suspicions of our National Treasury.— Pieter-Louis Myburgh, News24 investigative journalist
Myburgh, says these latest developments come after former public protector Thuli Madonsela's 2015 investigation into PRASA.
