E-tolling is not a major election issue for the ANC ahead of this year’s elections, SA National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) CEO Nazir Alli has said.

“I don’t think it was a major concern, they just wanted to hear it from the horse’s mouth, so to speak; to hear it from our minister ...” he was quoted as saying by financial daily Business Day.

He was speaking after briefing the ANC’s national executive committee on electronic tolling, which came into effect in Gauteng on December 3.

“They wanted to know about the whole e-toll package and we have given them sufficient detail. There is a better understanding of how the system works and an understanding of what the links are if Sanral defaults on any of its programme with other state-owned entities.”

ANC communication subcommittee chairperson Lindiwe Zulu said ahead of the meeting that matters such as e-tolls were not “campaign issues”.
