Gauteng: We're not in any fight with Govt
Gauteng's provincial govt says it has no conflict with national govt over e-tolls.
JOHANNESBURG - The Gauteng provincial government has said it's not in any fight with national government over e-tolls, after Transport Minister Dipuo Peters said she would not follow any recommendations from the Gauteng e-tolls review panel.
The Gauteng provincial government's Thabo Masebe says Makhura has made no decision about the future of e-tolls.
"What the premier decides to do on the basis of the advice that he will receive from the panel is what he would have to decide. He hasn't decided - he hasn't made any decisions."
Masebe says there's no conflict with national government over this issue.
"The Gauteng provincial government does not disagree in any way with the national government. We're not in any fights whatsoever with national government."
"Yes, government can say it's going to continue with e-tolling but the people aren't going to continue with e-tolling and cannot raise the funds, what then?"
He also says the fuel levy is a use and pay system.
The Gauteng premier criticised the e-toll system before he became premier.
