The Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) on Monday terminated the contract of acting group CEO Collins Letsoalo, according to SABC Online. 

The Sunday Times reported that Letsoalo demanded a R5.9-million package, which is four times his agreed salary, just a month after assuming the post. Prasa’s acting head of human resources rejected the demand and was subsequently replaced, according to the report. Letsoalo had also demanded a chauffeur-driven vehicle as well as “a company cellphone with unlimited calls”.

Letsoalo, who was seconded to the rail agency by Transport Minister Dipuo Peters on July 7, held a press briefing on Monday in Tshwane where he rejected claims that he had hiked his salary by 350%.
