JOHANNESBURG - The state capture inquiry has heard that the ANC top six was well aware of corruption at Prasa in 2015.

This is according to Passenger Rail Agency's former chairperson, Popo Molefe.

Molefe was on the stand on Monday following a COVIDid-19 lockdown break.

He claims good people were being removed from positions in Prasa because they weren't bending to those who were looting the public purse.

Molefe also pointed out that the Prasa board was dissolved in March 2017 because it was investigating allegations of corruption within Prasa.

The rail agency's finances are in disarray, partly due to irregular spending at the company.

This year, Prasa also took steps against corrupt officials and suspended 12 people pending a disciplinary hearing.
