Former Transport Minister Dipuo Peters dissolved the board after a public spat with its acting CEO Collins Letsoalo.

The board accused Lestoalo of hiking his pay without its knowledge and fired him.

Peters says the spat had contributed to a deteriorating state of affairs at Prasa.

She then put in place an interim board.

But Popo Molefe -- who chaired the axed board --believed the minister's decision was irrational and challenged the matter in court.
