JOHANNESBURG - The state capture commission continued hearing evidence into alleged corruption at passenger rail agency Prasa.

Former Prasa board chairperson Popo Molefe concluded his testimony after two days of explosive allegations.

He said the ANC allegedly got its slice of the multi-billion rand Swifambo deal while government and law enforcement simply failed to stem the looting.

Molefe testified "the movement" wanted its slice of the multi-billion rand locomotive tender.

Molefe detailed laying countless criminal cases with the Hawks, asking it to investigate alleged corruption at the rail agency.

"We tabled some 69 cases that we had reported. We were concerned that there was no movement," he said.

The inquiry chair lambasted what is on the face of it a pervasive culture of impunity.

"But nobody comes up to say this board has been dismissed, it had reported these cases, let's pursue them. Nobody does that."
