'Only the ANC can scrap e-tolls'
Gauteng Premier David Makhura says only the ANC can resolve the e-tolling matter and encouraged residents to vote for the party.
The ANC and its alliance partners marched to the Union Buildings on Friday pleading with national government to find another way to pay off the South African National Roads Agency's debt instead of passing it on to motorists.
E-tolls are back in the spotlight after Finance Minister Tito Mboweni insisted that motorists must pay their e-toll bills.
He says they have not followed through with their promise to scrap e-tolls.
Makhura says only the ANC can resolve the e-tolling matter and has encouraged residents to vote for them.
“The e-tolls have no future in the plans of this province as long as the ANC is in charge.”
He has again insisted that the system has failed and will never work.
“The e-tolls were given a chance but they failed, they have failed totally and completely.”
