EFF to march against e-tolls
The newest South African political party will stage its first protests against e-tolls today.
JOHANNESBURG - The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) will stage its first protest against the controversial e-tolling system in Johannesburg today as government prepares to start collecting fees for using Gauteng's highways.
The party plans to march to the Gauteng Department of Transport and the office of the Premier to hand over a memorandum calling for the system to be scrapped.
South Africa's newest political party plans to march from Newtown into the City Centre.
The EFF's Patrick Sindane says, "We are confident that we are going to have a very successful march. Our people have spoken and they need to voice their anger on the streets. We are not saying we completely reject the e-toll system and the implementation of it while sitting in our fancy boardrooms, we need to be on the streets to show that we are sick and tired."
