We need to be cautiously optimistic over the suspension of e-toll debt - OUTA

Sanral has, with immediate effect, suspended the process of pursuing e-toll debt, including summonses applied for from 2015.

The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) says the decision by the South African National Roads Agency (Sanral) to suspend the process of pursuing e-toll debt is a strong signal that the end is near for the Gauteng e-tolls.

Sanral has announced it will, with immediate effect, suspend the process of pursuing e-toll debt. This includes historic debt and summonses applied for from 2015.

Outa CEO Wayne Duvenage says while this is good news, the suspension can be undone.

We do not know if this is politicking and whether the elections around the corner is driving this decision.

It needs to be addressed permanently. Until the roads are declared as non-toll roads and until they pull back on the test case and write off this debt, we have to continue fighting this matter.

Wayne Duvenage, CEO - Outa

I think for the motoring public this is excellent news because what is happening here is when government makes decisions that are not in the best interest of society, they need to be dealt with in a certain manner and civil disobedience campaign like this has brought about the right decision.
