Prasa gets tough with locomotives supplier: Give back our R2.6bn

Prasa’s lawyers, Werksmans Attorneys, yesterday issued a letter to Swifambo Rail Leasing demanding R2,650,208,400 to be repaid to the SEO with interest payments.

Last week the Johannesburg High Court found that the tender for the trains was specifically designed to favour Swifambo Rail Leasing and its partner, Spanish locomotive manufacturer Vossloh España, which in effect set aside the tender.

Judge J Francis then set aside the 2013 contract earlier this month starting that: “Harm will be done to the administration of justice if this award is not set aside from the outset. Corruption will triumph if this court does not set aside the tender.”
