Untu general secretary Steve Harris said to date no train drivers belonging to Untu have a telephone number for the “war room or rooms” where they can report problems occurring on their routes.
Harris said for them it is business as usual since the establishment of the “war rooms” as they continue to bear witness to the stripping of the remaining infrastructure by criminals.
The war room was meant to sort out the problems at Prasa. At the time, Mbulula said it would be used as a tool to track the progress of the plan to improve the country's railways.
But Harris said abnormal working of the trains continued, with thousands of manual authorisations issued per month nationwide.
