Minister to Push Zuma on e-Tolls

The Department of Transport intends pushing President Jacob Zuma to sign into law the electronic tolling bill

Transport Minister, Dipuo Peters, aims to push President Jacob Zuma to sign into law the electronic tolling bill.
 
The newly-appointed minister says she is expected to meet with presidential advisers to put pressure on them to ensure that Zuma signs the bill, which passed by the National Council of Provinces in May.
 
Meanwhile, Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (OUTA) has been quoted by the media as saying that the public is not fooled by reduced e-toll tariffs.
 
OUTA chairperson, Wayne Duvenage, pointed out that, "Sugar-coating the pill now merely prolongs that pain that society will have to endure later, unless of course there will be more transfers from Treasury under renegotiation of the contracts to significantly reduce the costs of collection."
