Sanral owed over R11bn in outstanding e-toll fees

Sanral has indicated it cannot write-off any of the debt until the collection process has been exhausted.

CAPE TOWN - The South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) is owed more than R11 billion in outstanding e-toll fees.

This emerged at a meeting between Sanral executives and Parliament's standing committee on public accounts on Tuesday.

The parastatal had to explain irregular, wasteful and fruitless expenditure totaling more than R1 billion over the past financial year.

Sanral management has told the committee there's been a slight increase in the number of people paying e-toll bills over the past two months.

Democratic Alliance (DA) Member of Parliament (MP) Tim Brauteseth asked whether the rest of the outstanding amount was recoverable.

“I do not want to know what the law says should be done, what is Sanral’s honest opinion on when we’ll collect that money. If they can’t collect it, how can it become a collectable asset?”

The agency's chairperson, Roshan Morar, said they were optimistic.

“We are positive as we’ve seen a gradual increase. Everybody should pay their outstanding amounts.”

Sanral has indicated it cannot write-off any of the debt until the collection process has been exhausted.
