Sanral CEO's resignation welcomed

2012-05-08 12:00

Johannesburg - The DA welcomed the resignation of SA National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) CEO Nazir Alli on Tuesday, saying it was "encouraged" by the move.

"He has done the honourable thing by resigning after the Gauteng e-toll fiasco," Democratic Alliance MPL Neil Campbell said.

"While he managed the construction of an excellent road network well, he is a poor communicator and we trust that his successor... will not only be an excellent manager, but also a good communicator."

The party hoped Alli's successor would allow "real" public participation before making "contentious decisions... unilaterally".

Campbell said whoever took up the reins would face a tough, uphill battle, and he wished them well.

In a statement earlier, Sanral board chairperson Tembakazi Mnyaka said it accepted Alli's resignation on Monday, but did not give his reasons for doing so. Alli would continue in his post until June 3.

Neither Congress of SA Trade Unions spokesperson Patrick Craven, nor Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance chairperson Wayne Duvenhage were immediately available for comment.

Outa was granted an urgent interdict on April 28 stopping the launch of the controversial e-toll project in Gauteng.
