Pieter Louis-Myburgh revealed how lucky Montana's property was bought through third parties linked to Prasa.

Journalists have come to the defense of investigative journalist Pieter-Louis Myburgh following a threat from former Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) boss Lucky Montana.

Montana threatened violence against Myburgh after a report revealed how third parties linked to a Prasa contractor bought a property for him.

Myburgh reported that the property was partly funded with money that can be traced back to a beneficiary of dodgy contracts worth R4bn from Prasa.

Giving details on the story, Myburgh says Montana was given an opportunity to respond.

As per the normal course of events that precede us publishing an investigative report, I got hold of Mr Montana on his cellphone and through SMS. You will then find in my original report his response to me following those attempts to get his input.

He basically said that he is not interested in discussing the matter, News 24 has some sort of agenda and he will not go into detail about it.

I certainly think the fact that it has been aired in such a public way, it definitely probably necessitates some sort of complaint to be laid with the authorities.
