E-tolling is not a major election issue for the ANC ahead of this year’s elections, roads agency Sanral’s CEO, Nazir Alli, has said.
“I don’t think it was a major concern, they just wanted to hear it from the horse’s mouth so to speak; to hear it from our minister,” he was quoted in Business Day as saying.
He was speaking after briefing the ANC’s national executive committee on e-tolling, which came into effect in Gauteng on 3 December.
“They wanted to know about the whole e-toll package and we have given them sufficient detail. There is a better understanding of how the system works and an understanding of what the links are if Sanral defaults on any of its programme with other state-owned entities.”
ANC communication subcommittee chair Lindiwe Zulu said ahead of the meeting that matters such as e-tolls were not “campaign issues”. — Sapa
