Over the last few weeks , South Africans of all backgrounds have united in the fight against e-tolls. So far , it has been a success with OUTA revealing this morning that 71 % of people still don't have e-tags.
However , who are part of those 29% ? Of course , some people are scared of what will happen if they don't pay, so they bought tags. I can understand. However , I've noticed a trend here. It seems as if people who are well off don't really care about standing with the common man , and are supporting Sanral.
You hear comments like "Well at least the highways will be empty for me" , and "Ag, its only R500 per month". You also notice that in a company parking lot, its the executives with the fancy German sedans who are all e-tagged up.
These people disgust me.
So what if you can afford it ? For once , can't you unite with other South Africans and fight this cause ? It seems to be the typical South African attitude of "Me First".
My message to the rich - You've shown us your wealth with your fancy cars - it would be nice to show us that you also have a spine.
