prasaANA reports that activist group #UniteBehind on Tuesday told MPs its members were being intimidated and threatened by Passenger Rail Services of SA (Prasa) employees to keep quiet about the state of commuter rail services in the country.  

"Prasa security is going to houses and speaking to their [members'] families and say we need to stop speaking about Prasa or raise any issues about Prasa," #UniteBehind's Zukiswa Vuka told a meeting of Parliament's portfolio committee on transport which was interrogating the failing state of passenger rail services in urban SA.  MPs were left flabbergasted and told civil society groups that they would be protected.  Deputy Transport Minister Sindisiwe Chikunga said she was concerned about Vuka's claims and challenged her to name those guilty of intimidation.
