JOHANNESBURG - The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) has warned Transport Minister Dipuo Peters not to isolate Gauteng Premier David Makhura over his decision to establish a review panel for the controversial e-tolling system.
The minister this week questioned the legitimacy of the panel set up by the provincial government to review a national transport initiative.
The review process is not being attended by the transport department or the South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) and the African National Congress (ANC) has also raised concerns.
But Cosatu's Gauteng secretary Dumisani Dakile says Makhura was given the go-ahead to set up the review by Tripartite Alliance partners.
"We are saying to the transport minister, she must desist from the isolating of the premier. This process of the review has been agreed upon by all of us, as the alliance partners."
