A big UP to John Clarke!

Well done, Mr Clarke, for so clearly exposing SANRAL's ongoing twisting of the facts. Their actions over the past few years have truly exposed them as a seriously dishonest company.

I don't believe any sane South African disputes the need for constant road upgrades. What we DO dispute is the non-transparent way that SANRAL conducts its affairs.

The very imposition of e-tolls was done with minimal public consultation and mainly under the guise of the Soccer World Cup.

Then the R21-billion deal was done with an overseas company that was PROVEN overseas to have 'paid bribes to senior ANC officials' in the Armsgate scandal.

SANRAL absolutely refuse to make their accounts public, even though they are paid with our public tax money. Looking back into SANRAL's history, Salahdin Yacoubi, its former Chief Executive of ETC, the company linked with SANRAL for e-toll collections -  resigned on 1 November 2013.

Then in January 2014, the next CEO, Ben Theron, resigned 'for personal reasons'. Now of course, Nazi Alli is resigning 'because he is 65'.

An interesting chain of events, wouldn't you say? 'Writing on the wall', maybe? I challenge SANRAL to publish their e-toll income vs.e-toll expenditure for the last 12 months.

And if SANRAL try to prosecute Mr Clarke for not paying his e-toll bills, a firestorm is going to break loose the like of which the ANC has never experienced before. I would like to see the courts try and prosecute the 1.4 million offenders who haven't paid their e-tolls, including myself.

And twisting a story about a faked numberplate into a pro-Sanral story is just another of the devious lies in the long history of  the tricks of this dishonest company.
