Debt forgiveness must also be a part of scrapping e-Tolls in Gauteng

The Democratic Alliance (DA) in Gauteng is calling on the National Transport Minister, Fikile Mbalula to include writing off the e-Toll debt in his announcement when he makes a decision about the future of e-Tolls in Gauteng.

Many residents in the province have not paid their e-Tolls as they are unable to afford this extra burden that was placed on them by the Gauteng Provincial Government (GPG).

This added expense has led to dissonance from the public and has proved to be a loss in revenue for the South African National Roads Agency.

For more than a year now, the GPG, as well as National Government have made countless promises on an announcement regarding the future of e-Tolls in the province. The DA hopes that an announcement on this matter is made soon as residents cannot be billed any longer for a system, they did not want in the first place.
