OUTA plans fundraising campaign
OUTA will launch a fundraising campaign to help prepare for the e-tolling court battle that lies ahead.
The Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (OUTA) will launch a fundraising campaign to help prepare for the e-tolling court battle that lies ahead.
The North Gauteng High Court on Saturday granted an urgent interdict against e-tolling, placing the project on hold until a full review can take place.
It remains to be seen whether the South African National Roads Agency Limited or the Treasury will appeal this decision.
The alliance’s Wayne Duvenage urged South Africans to support them in the next phase of the battle.
“Our coffers are rather empty, so we will be putting together a very focused fundraising campaign.”
The alliance’s lawyer Pieter Conradie said the case would make legal history.
“The government must start realising that they serve the people and not the other way around.”
The review is expected to begin in the next few months.
Meanwhile, Cosatu welcomed the decision, while the Transport Department said it needed time to study the ruling.
