Former PRASA boss goes after the Sunday Times

Former PRASA acting CEO, Collins Letsoalo says the apology by the Sunday Times is not enough. Letsoalo has announced that he is suing the state-owned entity for unfairly dismissing him and that he will also be going after the DA for calling him a thief, former PRASA board chair, Popo Molefe in his personal capacity as well as Sunday Times Journalist, Caiphus Kgosana. The paper published an apology on Sunday, retracting the article after the Auditor-General revealed that a report the paper used was fake. Letsoalo has now called on the police to find the individual behind the fabricated Auditor General report. Letsoalo says his life is in danger because of his opposition to wrongdoing at the agency that also led to his dismissal following a now-retracted newspaper report. He spoke to Sakina Kamwendo.
