E-toll protestors await response from Sanral
Anti e-toll protestors are now waiting for a response from Sanral after burning their e-tolls bills.
JOHANNESBURG - Anti e-toll protestors are now waiting for the South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) to respond to their grievances, which were handed over after setting their unpaid bills on fire outside the agency's offices at the weekend.
Motorists, bikers and taxi drivers had just one message on Saturday, saying they would pay their e-toll bills when President Jacob Zuma pays for the upgrades to his Nkandla home.
Protestors are demanding an investigation into alleged fraud linked to the e-toll contract signed to build Gauteng's highways.
Protestors set fire to their unpaid e-toll bills, which were placed in a white coffin with the words ' Rest in Peace E-tolls.'
Their message was clear.
"We would like to pass our heartfelt condolences to the passing on of the late e-tolls. Let him rot in hell, let him rot!"
Gauteng Premier David Makhura's assessment panel on the tolling system is expected to hand a report to national government with recommendations on how to deal with the controversial e-tolls project, which has been widely rejected.
The controversial system went live on 3 December after months of legal wrangling, protests and calls for civil disobedience.
