Sanral and the truth

2015-12-03 18:37

Ever since Sanral's e-tolling was implemented, with farcically little public consultation, it has been doomed.

The deal was struck with an company that was PROVEN overseas to have paid bribes in the Armsgate scandal. Sanral have consistently refused to ever let their books be examined by an independent authority.

Sanral always twists the truth; for example, the person 'convicted for evading e-tolls' was actually convicted of falsifying his number plates. But Sanral, in typical fashion, made out the case was primarily about evading etolls. It wasn't.

Sanral says that Outa 'doesn't offer a funding model that doesn't punish the  poor.' False: ETOLLS DO PUNISH THE POOR. E-tolls add massive costs to the costs of trucks delivering bread, mealie meal, milk etc - costs which have been passed on to the consumer.

Contrary to what Vusi Mona says, there IS a far better alternative to funding our roads: ring-fencing our fuel tax levy which we already pay. But in this way, certain fat cats cannot cream off the benefits. Meanwhile, billions of rands of our hard-earned tax money are being sent off to Austria to pay for an ill-gotten scheme that was always meant to benefit certain individuals, never SA as a whole.

No wonder that there has been almost universal outrage against e-tolls by Black, White, Indian and Coloured folk from every political party across the board. E-tolls is a mess which the ANC conceived - and now it is biting them on the bum badly.

May it continue to turn millions away from ever voting for the ANC again, never mind Mona's rantings that e-tolls are a success. They are a disaster. They are in such deep financial mire, they don't even send out accounts in the post any more, while more and more senior people leave Sanral and its sister company, ETC.  

Vusi Mona's rantings are merely a desperate attempt to cover up the real truth about the massive e-toll disaster.
