Task team to be set up to scrap Gauteng’s e-tolls

July 24, 2018

VAAL TRIANGLE - Vaal Triangle motorists travelling to other parts of Gauteng regularly will be happy to hear the ANC in Gauteng has finally resolved that the controversial e-tolling system should be scrapped. This is one of the resolutions passed by the party during its provincial conference at the St George Hotel in Irene, Pretoria East, on Sunday. Motorists have accused the government of implementing e-tolls without consulting them. Opposition parties have been up in arms demanding the scrapping of e-tolls which were introduced in 2013. Newly-elected ANC provincial secretary Jacob Khawe, who is also the current Emfuleni Mayor, said the conference has resolved that e-tolls must fall. Newly elected Gauteng ANC deputy chairman Panyaza Lesufi says a resolution has been taken to set up a task team to look into scrapping e-tolls. Lesufi said the task team would engage on the modalities and check the costs‚ the running and all other related matters. He said the resolutions taken at the conference would be made public next month‚ adding that it was important for the public to see them.
