Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has hit out at the ANC, transport ministers and Parliament for abandoning the board of the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) when it sought to fight back against corruption.  

The chief justice handed over parts five and six of the state capture report to President Cyril Ramaphosa on Wednesday evening. He dedicated around 250 pages of the final report to wrongdoing at Prasa.

In particular, he questioned why the former chairperson of Prasa's board, Popo Molefe, had been ignored or stymied when he tried to clean house in 2014.
