Molefe added that he hopes the new cleaning brrom will also sweep through troubled Prasa.

I hope that the cleaning broom will get to Prasa because it’s an Important transport system for the poor people of his country. We insisted that Prasa be cleaned up, we are the first to start and the tragedy is that we didn’t get support at the time.

The former Prasa chair says he has faith in the new ANC leadership.

I think with the new leadership in the ruling party we can expect that things will happen now, things will change. The determination showed by the deputy president, we can expect things to happen.

Molefe has condemned the Hawks and The NPA for their reluctance to act against corruption and state capture.

The reluctance or failure of the NPA and Hawks to act cannot be acting as a reaction that they are captured. The onus is on them to prove that they are not captured, nothing will save their skins now, they have to act.
