Cape Town - Axed Prasa board chairperson Popo Molefe believes Transport Minister Dipuo Peters decision to fire the board is likely an attempt to protect former acting CEO Collins Letsoalo.

Following the sudden dissolution of the board, Molefe told ANN7 he was not officially informed that he was fired. However, he noted that other board members confirmed receiving letters from Peters advising them that their services have been terminated.

"We will challenge it to ensure that we defend our rights as directors, our integrity and reputation."
