Cape Town - Former Finance Minister Tito Mboweni has scrutinized the choice of the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) to fire its CEO, Zolani Matthews, over double citizenship.


Mboweni said there were many individuals who work in State-Owned Entities without being South African residents.


He said greater clearness was required on the purposes for the chopping out of Matthews.


Mboweni tweeted about the excusal, saying he contradicted Prasa's choice to hack out its CEO and called for greater clearness on the matter.


"I can't help contradicting the Prasa choice. Could they elaborate. Prasa fires CEO Zolani Matthews over double citizenship matter. Nothing bad about double citizenship. Except if in case he denied it when inquired. There are many individuals who don't have South African citizenship who work at the SOEs. Except if there is something they are stowing away from us. Straightforwardness individuals".

In the perspective on the previous money serve, there is nothing bad about double citizenship.


His feelings came after Prasa made the declaration on Matthews.


The gathering said this consistent choice was taken on November 29 after an examination by senior insight that set up whether Matthews "purposely or deliberately neglected to uncover material data to Prasa in regard of double citizenship".


Combined with his South African citizenship, Matthews likewise holds British citizenship.


He was delegated to the top situation in February this year. He had evidently been denied trusted status by the State Security Agency, which was a prerequisite of his work contract.


"Mr Matthews' letter of arrangement unmistakably specifies (as one of the key necessities) that his agreement of work might be affirmed upon him acquiring good trusted status. The State Security Agency (SSA) has since declined to give Mr Matthews highly classified exceptional status or some other trusted status," read Prasa's assertion.
