The board of the state-owned Passenger RailAgency of South Africa (PRASA) said on Thursday it had accepted the resignation of interim group CEO Sibusiso Sithole.


Sithole had been at the helm of the organisation for nine months before what the board called a mutually agreed separation.


PRASA on February 10 advertised the vacant positions of group CEO, chief financial officer and other key executives roles which have been vacant for a while.


On Thursday it said while the search for group CEO was under way, the department of transport had seconded Dr Nkosinathi Sishi to act in the position.
