ANC Gauteng to lead People’s March and protest against e-tolls

The African National Congress in Gauteng will lead a People’s March to the Union Building on Friday.

In a statement, the provincial branch said the march is aimed at finding sustainable solutions to various concerns that have a bearing on the daily cost of living experiences of citizens, especially the poor.

The statement further says the march is a means to respond to the plight of Gauteng residents who have rejected e-tolls and have raised concerns about the poor state of the public transport system, regular fuel hikes, value added tax increases, cost of data and other issues.

ANC Gauteng Province PEC Member and Convener of the Economic Transformation Subcommittee, Kgosientso Ramokgopa joined Karima Brown on her show to explain how it plans to undo the e-toll policy.

When this policy was introduced through a process of public participation, the African National Congress did make a submission at the time that in fact this is going to harm the poor and is injurious to the realisation of the national democratic society.
