Services on the Mamelodi corridor have been suspended after a series of incidents, says Lillian Mofokeng, Gauteng Metrorail spokesperson, on the Midday Report.
She says it has been witnessing continuous senseless staff assaults, train hijackings, and attacks on their new trains that introduced to the Mamelodi corridor.
In less than a week, we have seen ten employees that were attacked and had to be withdrawn from our train service operations.— Lillian Mofokeng, Gauteng Metrorail spokesperson
Mofokeng said there is no time frame as to when normal train services will resume as they are still in talks with different law enforcement agencies to help rectify the matter.
No form of vandalism or even attacks can actually be allowed in our operation and we had to suspend services temporarily.— Lillian Mofokeng, Gauteng Metrorail spokesperson
