Prasa appoints former eThekwini city manager Sibusiso Sithole as group CEO


JOHANNESBURG, June 5 – The Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa on Tuesday announced Sibusiso Sithole as its new group chief executive for a period of 12 months effective 1 June 2018.

Sithole, the former city manager of eThekwini municipality, will take over from Cromet Molepo who has been acting group chief executive since December 2017.

Prasa said it appointed Sithole, a turnaround strategist and policy specialist, to bring stability and certainty to the embattled state-owned rail agency.

Addressing senior executives at a meeting to welcome him, Sithole said he was appreciative and sensitive to the issues affecting the organization, and that Prasa was not alone as most state-owned enterprises were currently going through turmoil.
