One of the passengers, Zak Benjamin, that was stuck on the Shosholoza Meyl train for three days reportedly wants his money back for the terrifying experience. The man was with his ill mother when he was travelling from Northern Cape to Cape Town on Sunday. They were in an unbearable state with several other people.
The people were compromised to the smell of toilets that cannot be flushed, they also didn’t have nutients such as food and water. On Tuesday, Shosholoza Meyl told TimesLive that they had planned for buses to transport the passengers from Laingsburg in the Western Cape. However, for Zak Benjamin it was too late because he had already asked his cousin to fetch him and his mom. Zak Benjamin says, “The train managers told us when we were in Laingsburg that they had arranged alternative transport for us. By that time I had asked my cousin to fetch us,” says Zak Benjamin.
The man carries on saying that when he is comes back from vacation he wants to talk with PRASA about the issue. “I will start bombarding them with e-mails now. I am seeking a refund because the experience was horrific. It was horrible,” says Zak Benjamin. The passenger says his mother was struggling to breath as she had a heart issue.
