Transport crisis paralysing South Africa

Tony Ehrenreich


Is there an explanation for the paralysis of the rail passenger service in Cape Town? The impact of this crisis is felt by all residents – employers and employees, students and teachers – with huge losses to the economy and well-being of commuters. Mr Ehrenreich gives us a hard-hitting analysis of the possible causes of the failures in the public transport system. While he focuses on Cape Town, his comments mirror the situation in the rest of the country.
