There was mudslinging civil disobedience campaigns protests and political infighting over e-tolls.
JOHANNESBURG - The Transport Department said it would give more clarity on the status of e-tolls after Thursday morning’s scheduled post-Cabinet briefing.
On Wednesday, Finance Minister Tito Mboweni said in his Medium-Term Budget Policy Statement that Gauteng motorists must pay up and that Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula would give more details.
Mbalula's spokesperson Ayanda Allie-Paine said the minister would issue a statement on Thursday.
“The ministry of transport will issue a statement that will serve as a status update.”
There were mudslinging civil disobedience campaigns protests and political infighting over e-tolls.
But almost six years since the implementation of the controversial system, the gantries are still standing and the majority of motorists are not paying.
