OUTA: Big companies too scared to fight Govt
OUTA said big businesses are too scared to fight Govt over projects like e-tolling.
JOHANNESBURG - the Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (OUTA) has criticised big businesses for being too scared to take on government over projects like e-tolling.
The alliance's Wayne Duvenage was one of the speakers at the Daily Maverick's conference in Johannesburg on Friday.
He said during their fundraising for a court challenge against government, they realised that big companies were often unwilling to "bite the hand that feeds"
This week it emerged in parliament that e-tolling would not be launched until at least February, while a court case over its future is due to start on Monday.
Duvenage has slammed the e-tolling project as a farce and said government refuses to listen to the people.
"There is none so deaf then those who do not want to listen. The public have made their voice loud and clear and government continues to think they can force this golf ball down this hosepipe."
