Gauteng Premier and African National Congress provincial chairperson, David Makhura, says he’s confident that the decision on e-tolls will be favourable to the province.
Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula says Finance Minister Tito Mboweni may have created the wrong impression about Gauteng’s e-tolls.
The African National Congress in Gauteng says it remains committed to finding alternative ways of funding road infrastructure that does not overburden citizens.
The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) said Gauteng citizens are already tax burdened and should not be taxed further with the e-tolls.
Finance Minister Tito Mboweni, says government has decided to retain the user pay principle amid on-going resistance to e-tolls in Gauteng.
