JOHANNESBURG - The South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) on Tuesday said it would not discuss any aspect of Nazir Alli's resignation, which came just over a week, after a Pretoria court granted an urgent interdict against e-tolling.

Alli's departure was announced in a surprise media statement earlier, following a meeting of the organisation's board on Monday.

Sanral said it was not granting any interviews to discuss the reasons behind Alli's resignation.

Its statement said the board accepted Alli's resignation, but would allow him to stay on as CEO until early June.

The board thanked him for almost 15 years of service and said his departure would not affect the running of the country's roads.

Sanral promised to make further announcements, but did not clarify when this would happen.

A court review of e-tolling is expected to get underway in the next few months.
