The board then took to the courts to challenge the decision by Peters and was reinstated.
In the latest developments on Tuesday, transport minster, Joe Maswanganyi has given Prasa board members seven days to come up with reasons as to why they should keep their positions.
Speaking to Afternoon Drive host, Redi Tlhabi, Molefe says he doesn't understand why people would repeatedly shoot themselves in the foot in this manner.
All I can say is that it is a not as simplistic as the minister thinks because there are certain obligations that he needed to have been met.— Popo Molefe, Prasa board chairman
He's again raising the issue of the investigation carried out by Werksmans Attorneys.— Popo Molefe, Prasa board chairman
Molefe says South Africa does not need these repeated acts of embarrassment.
Prasa has filed an urgent application with the courts to compel the Directorate for Priority Crimes Criminal Investigations to explain to the courts and the South African public why they are failing to discharge their constitutional mandate as an organ of state, he adds.
The NPA as well as the Directorate for Priority Crimes Criminal Investigations should be able to proceed with certain critical cases before the courts. By now they should have frozen certain assets.— Popo Molefe, Prasa board chairman
Molefe says Maswanganyi was leading the assault on the board Prasa when he was a member of the portfolio committee of transport.
