JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng anti-e-toll protesters have set their unpaid e-toll bills alight in front of the South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) offices in Pretoria.

The demonstration is being led by Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) and Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (Outa) who staged a drive slow in Johannesburg and Pretoria.

A mock up white coffin with the remains of burnt e-toll bills has been placed at the main entrance of Sanral's head offices in Pretoria.

Bikers joined Cosatu and Outa members who are driving home their message 'say no to e-tolls.'

Security guards are closely monitoring the protest.

A man says he will never pay his e-toll bills.

"When President Jacob Zuma pays for upgrades at his Nkandla home we will pay for e-tolls."

Motorists say it's time the roads agency accepts that the system has failed.
