Prasa corruption whistleblower Martha Ngoye feels betrayed

Martha Ngoye, the whistleblower responsible for exposing widespread corruption at the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa), said she felt betrayed by her country.

JOHANNESBURG – Martha Ngoye, the whistleblower responsible for exposing widespread corruption at the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa), said she felt betrayed by her country.

Ngoye was one of the railway agency officials who spoke out against Swifambo and Siyangena’s multi-billion dollar contracts.

The contracts have since been canceled by the courts and declared invalid.

It is also credited with halting a billion rand investment in VBS Mutual Bank in the months leading up to the collapse.

Martha Ngoye is currently suspended from her post as General Counsel of Prasa, where she now faces an internal disciplinary hearing.

Ngoye said the story of murdered Gauteng Health Department whistleblower Babita Deokaran resonated with her.

“Looking at Babita’s life and my life as a single woman, as a mother of a daughter, I looked at Babita’s daughter and I looked at my daughter and I saw the pain in the eyes of both girls and I feel very betrayed by my country,” Ngoye said.

Martha Ngoye’s disciplinary hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.

She had hoped the process would continue in pursuit to finally clear her name.

“I’m sick. This must come to an end. I must clear my name, as I said, and clear my name, I will go to hell or flood,” she said.
