Pretoria - A resolution of the ANC Gauteng provincial conference regarding e-tolls will be divulged, Chairperson Paul Mashatile said on Saturday.

"Our delegates are now in commissions, discussing everything before them. What the delegates will say about it, I don't know," he told reporters in Pretoria.

"Once resolutions are taken, we will make them public. You will know what our delegates think about that matter."

The elective conference ends on Sunday. On Friday, Mashatile said recommendations of the e-tolls review panel should be implemented. "We cannot close our eyes in Gauteng when our people have problems," he told the party's provincial conference in Pretoria. "If anybody is going to come to me and say 'don't discuss e-tolls', I won't agree. We must be the first as ANC to say to our people we have heard you."

He said government agencies, particularly the SA National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral), did not run the country. "It's not that I don't like Sanral, but they must know their place," he said.
