DA e-toll billboards destructive - ANC

2013-11-21 18:50

Johannesburg - The DA's unveiling of billboards on e-tolls was a destructive campaign, the ANC in Gauteng said on Thursday.

"It is clear that the Democratic Alliance and [its] inexperienced candidate [Mmusi] Maimane do not have policies and issues that can convince voters," ANC spokesperson Dumisa Ntuli said in a statement.

"The DA uses e-tolling as a trump card to entice voters because they are divided on issues of leadership, equity and BBBEE [broad-based black economic empowerment]."

He said this type of campaigning would not deter voters from voting for the ANC, because it had done a lot for the people of Gauteng.

The DA unveiled a new billboard against e-tolls on the N3 highway in Germiston on Thursday.

The blue and white billboard states: "A vote for the DA is a vote against e-tolls."

DA spokesperson Maimane said it formed part of an intensive campaign to mobilise Gauteng voters against the government which imposed e-tolls.

"We urge motorists to vote for the DA to put a stop to this daylight robbery," he said.

Earlier this year, the DA commissioned anti-e-toll billboards on the N3 and N1 highways, which derided ANC and its role in the e-tolling saga.

Nthuli said: "The DA is just pulling wool over people's eyes that the e-tolls are bad."

He said the ANC in Gauteng fully supported the e-tolling system because it would improve road infrastructure.

    Which voters are talking abwt coz an going to vote DA next year?

      Bullet Proof - 2013-11-21 19:15

      Destructive is what the cANCer is doing to this Country.

      Patrick Starkey - 2013-11-21 19:37

      I get the impression that the ANC would like the DA campaign to be more ANC friendly. Can't think why the DA would not buy into that ?

      Craig Elliott - 2013-11-21 19:38

      Pot calling the kettle black .. The ANC is a destructive organisation full stop !

      Bruce Gatland - 2013-11-21 19:38

      The ANC party have been the most destructive disease our country have suffered since "democracy". What the DA are saying on their billboards is the truth; to the guilty, the truth hurts.

      BeObamaz - 2013-11-21 19:40

      ANC is immature in politics. How dare their President say, "we should stop thinking like Africans in Africa? Is Nkandla in Europe??

      Grant Montgomery - 2013-11-21 20:26

      @Tsotsi, as the average EFF supporter e-toll won't effect you directly but the increase in food prices will.

      Boaz Yarmarkov - 2013-11-22 08:24

      E Toll will make bread & milk more expensive as the trucks delivering the goods will be forced to pay the new Tolls. The people who will be affected THE MOST are the poor – not the middle class or the rich. The DA is fighting for the poor – the poor can’t see it through all the ANC propaganda and lies. The ANC that brought us to democracy is not the same ANC that is addicted to self enrichment and corruption. The ANC couldn’t care less about their own electorate, yet alone South Africa’s economic future. Sadly many will leave the ANC to the EFF... The EFF being a black version of the AWB will be the last nail in the coffin of the rainbow nation we have tried so hard to build. Sadly, our education system that was downgraded to keep the ANC in power, will not allow South Africans to learn from history - Hitler came to power democratically in Germany... the same perfect storm is happing right here (unemployment and looking for scapegoats). Hitler with his fiery speeches and scapegoating Jews led to the death of over 20 million Europeans. Malema with his fiery speeches and scapegoating Whites is going to destroy SA.

      Quenton Crafford - 2013-11-22 08:51

      Tsotsi why should they deliver anythign they are not the ones in power your silly government which you voted is suppose to take care of them people.. So do not blame DA for your mistakes you made by voting anc. this is all your faults so keep a lid on it you agent

      Dayle8 - 2013-11-22 09:07

      Wow how stupid is that "Tsotsibaby Eyecontrol Brolin" idiot ha ha i cannot believe the mentality of some people

      Andre Jacobs - 2013-11-22 09:28

      The original freeway improvements turned out to be PAYWAY toll roads all done undemocratically as to benefit the anc and friends. The most expensive pay system was designed as to hurt the tax payer to the maximum. This was all very destructive to the citizens and to SA. A road the N3 has always been a free road and the law says that if a route or road existed for more than 30 YEARS then your freedom of movement on that route can not be restricted. So by charging money is a restriction and thus illegal.--!!

      Jack WasBlack - 2013-11-23 08:44

      I believe the DA - contrary to what is said in this article - do have clear policies (though I will give it to Ntuli that the DA don't have the issues that he clearly does). The problem the ANC seems to have is that they simply aren't able to get that simply stating you will do the opposite of what the ANC is doing - is clear to people (but maybe not sheeples ) as definitive policies. Examples: Economic policy - don't have corruption that necessitates the need to find new ways to steal from the people to fund these corrupt people (hence no e-tolls). Security policy - don't allow national security areas or assets to be used for personal purposes - thereby creating better national security. Law and Order policy - don't appoint criminals or incompetent people to run the police forces and don't tolerate criminals or lazy people as part of this force - hence giving crime prevention a chance. BBBEE policy - don't establish a redistribution approach that is based on an introduction and enforcement of racism - give everyone a chance whilst working progressively towards equity and empowerment of everyone with appropriate consideration of demographics ... Can't see how cANCer can't get that ? (Policies are simple - don't do as the ANC do ..)

      Adrian Bruwer - 2013-11-29 08:59

      Oh please Dumisa Ntuli. Why don't you call a referendum on this issue and then see for yourself.

  • Ol Mabaso - 2013-11-21 18:58

    He-he... Dumisa Ntuli calls DA's Maimane ''unexperienced''...In what ? In corruption ?

      Daniel Bad-Man - 2013-11-21 22:32

      Hahahahaha!!! well said! lol

  • Stephan van Schalkwyk - 2013-11-21 19:05

    They are just sour that they aren't in the position to gain voters like the DA. Winners don't cry when the others side plays the game...

  • Lums Zindela - 2013-11-21 19:06

    couldn't be as destructive as e-toll, i hope people could see the reason to derail zuma's gravy train, it's long overdue

  • Graham Jehoma - 2013-11-21 19:08

    ANC......response. ........weak and based on old history.....what have you done for me lately?.....this black man is not voting ANC again.......tired of lies

      Graham Jehoma - 2013-11-21 19:23

      Macow do you have rocks in your head? EFF is like asking your mother in law to move in with you......knowing the noise levels will increase while watching sports

      Ol Mabaso - 2013-11-21 19:37

      EFF is a parasite party. Members without jobs - how are they going to support their party if can't support themselves?

      William Wallace - 2013-11-22 10:26

      So let me get this straight. . .according to you Makau, the opposite of oppressors is the EFF? Very ironic, considering your leader is being accused of stealing money that should have been used for providing services (that's right, tax money's sole purpose is service delivery, not paying for a wrist watch of R20000 and a car of R1 million). These before-mentioned "necessities", as you would recall, Malema didn't mind flaunting around in public when he was still with the ANC. Very difficult to forget Apartheid, but forgetting past transgressions committed by Malema? Easy as cake! For a man who is so anti-capitalism, Mr. Malema sure likes it a lot to live large!

  • Sipho Gift - 2013-11-21 19:09

    What is constructive 2 the cancer regime is corruption that's why their slogan says 2gether we can do more#corruption#if u don't want 2 steal ur destructive 2 this regime

  • ngcosman - 2013-11-21 19:09

    Though I'm against e-tolls, making voters to believe that by voting DA will make the e-tolls disappear is silly, childish and misleading. Its late for government to stop the e-tolls. DA or no DA there is debt that must be paid#FINISH&KLAAR#

      Ol Mabaso - 2013-11-21 19:20

      Where did you get this idea ? 'Death and taxes', the rest is changeable !

      Lorna Murdoch-Eaton - 2013-11-21 19:57

      Nonsense, @ngcosman. Those tolls were implemented against strong opposition from the citizens of this country - in other words, imposed against the wishes of the electorate. The debt was incurred to a FOREIGN country under devious circumstances and most of the income from that so-called "debt" is OUR money leaving OUR country. It can and should be reversed immediately.

      Erwin de Ruiter - 2013-11-22 08:43

      Hypethetically, say the DA wins... the roads belong to the ANC, the DA has the city. It will be a crazy situation. The DA wants to move around, but the ANC wants them to pay for it? The ANC is so busy cementing the tolls into scripture, it will take more then the DA to end it...

      William Wallace - 2013-11-22 10:30

      Agreed! There is debt to be paid. . .by the ANC. . .Not the motorists, for crying out loud! It's actually very funny, the debt incurred was for the erection of the gantries, now the ANC is expecting the motorists to pay for installation of the thing that is making them pay. How do you understand that logic??

      Graham Davidson - 2013-11-23 12:23

      Better to take the hit now. Scrap. e tolls, as it will never turn a profit anyway. Mabey this is just the last expense related to ANC corruption and incompetence that needs to be paid.

  • ayanda.marasi - 2013-11-21 19:10

    South African politics make me sick. As long as DA and ANC are capitalizing on personal vendettas nothing will come right. White,green,black will always find it difficult to have confidence on the current giverment, because they raise issues and never resolve them, all they do is blame,blame, blame.

  • Difa Mashwama - 2013-11-21 19:13

    Ag, we all know that the majority will not waste their votes , voting for a Racist party like DA who uses unemployed black people to campaign for their personal hidden agenda.

      JamesMWood - 2013-11-21 19:14

      And the anc don't?

      Jared Lindolent - 2013-11-21 19:43

      Shows what an ignorant backward racists you are Difa. Just cause the DA has black members you assume they are unemployed and have a personal hidden agenda. I'm sure you are an ANC die-hard, you fall right into that mold of scum.

      Bernard Ngwira - 2013-11-21 19:58

      Difa, you are a stupid racist urself. SA is a black majority country, there is no way the DA would implement those racial policies you claim. Dont hinder progress this country belongs to many more generations to come.

      Lorna Murdoch-Eaton - 2013-11-21 20:08

      A vote for the ANC is a wasted vote. I suspect you have made up your mind long ago and no matter how badly the ANC do things, you haven't the capacity to change your mind. You will blindly jump off the cliff that the ANC points you to. The silly and incorrect race card thing that you are playing shows you haven't much in the way of concrete argument against the DA. In fact you obviously don't know what the DA manifesto actually IS, nor do you acknowledge their proven track record in the cape.

      Mpho Gift Moroentse - 2013-11-22 09:24

      atleast those unemployed people are doing something than to sit home, by the way those unemployed people created by ANC

      Somebody is worried?

  • James Santam - 2013-11-21 19:13

    "He said the ANC in Gauteng fully supported the e-tolling system because it would improve road infrastructure." So what do our taxes go towards improving? The farking compound of an uneducated rapist???

      Lorna Murdoch-Eaton - 2013-11-21 20:20

      James' point is that there is another lie about what OUR money is going to be used for. We are already taxed and levied for the road infrastructure, this latest e-tolling thing is a deviously concocted system that was IMPOSED on people and much of the money raised is destined to be sent out of our country, NOT used for roads or any betterment of the general population. Our taxes are NOT supposed to be used for supporting hangers-on, multitudes of wives or lavish lifestyles - just remember that every cent of tax money that is spent on that sort of thing is money diverted from helping the genuinely struggling people of our land.

  • Hluvukani Craig Mabasa - 2013-11-21 19:15

    Dumisa ntuli is talking rubbish,most people never supported e tolls, no proper consultation was done,most people cnt afford this e tolls proudly brought by the anc & its a fact,why should we vote for a party that doesn't care or listen to the people as long as they enrich themselves,they don't deserve my vote,da is right on its campaigns.

  • MJ - 2013-11-21 19:15

    Says the party whose first point of any arguement (even if they vary how they say it) is "its apartheids fault". Very hypocritical.

  • Nico Ruiters - 2013-11-21 19:16

    Yea I forgot that 50% of the fuel price are levies, and combined with E-Tags, isn't destructive.

  • Ryno Van Jaarsveld - 2013-11-21 19:16

    Not nearly as destructive as the ANC. I rather support an inexperienced politician that has the potential to grow and bring about change than experienced criminals only out to enrich themselves.

  • Craig Morrison - 2013-11-21 19:18

    I've asked before and I'll ask again, Wtf is happening to our anual licence fees. Are they not meant to be for road maintenance and upgrades. And if I'm not mistaken so is a percentage of rates and taxes.

      Paul Coetzee - 2013-11-21 20:17

  • Cecil Rowe - 2013-11-21 19:35

    It is not the billboard that is destructive, it is e tolls that will make life even more difficult for the poorest of the poor and effect each and every citizen living in the Gauteng region. The fact that the tax payers are also going to foot the bill for the "government" vehicles makes this travesty even worse. The majority of us will not buy e tags and we will most certainly not pay e tolls either. Stop the plundering, corruption and lies.

The sooner you buy the E-tags the better you become. when the smart card drivers licence were introduced , some people refused to comply and some even lost their rights of driving. If the DA and others were honest why they are not protesting against Toll Gates. So like it or not E-Tolls are there to stay for the rest of our life time.

      Kenny people in Gauteng they made it clear that they don't want to pay E~toll and the DA is capitalising on that to sink the ANC, on my surprise why Mr Nthuli think all this happaning is no mattered the most hence they continue to losing support to other opposition

  • Joel Mabeke - 2013-11-21 20:08

    To all DA suppoters if you keep on hating us the potential voters and being racist to us you are chasing us away. Every time a potential voter like me comes to this forum i feel not wanted ,its as if you saying take your dirty black vote we dont need it.

      Leanne Shanks - 2013-11-21 21:41

      Dude!!! PEOPLE (not blacks, whites, coloureds, Indians etc) need to see the light - try stop thinking colour, start looking at whether you're prospering under this regime or if you're worse off..... You've got it in your head that it's about colour, 'cos it's about colour for YOU! I wanna have a govt who doesn't rip me off in every way they can - if that's the ANC, I'll vote for them (bwahahahahahahahaha!!!), if it's the DA, I'll vote for them.... Stop being a victim, claim your right to vote for a govt who could actually do better for YOU than the ANC - they can't be much worse, can they???!!! Who gives a sh*t what the people say here - it matters what YOU think and whether you want the best for yourself and your kids.... K, I'll step off my soap box now :)

      Adele Kharidzha Danisa - 2013-11-29 09:54

      that is exactly how i feel. but i will never vote for the DA. NEVER!!

  • Pamela Angeline Harvey - 2013-11-21 20:10

    THE TRUTH ALWAYS HURTS, BE IT BY means of a T -shirt or a billboard. Nothing read on either medium was a lie just good old fashioned honesty and truth! The ANC knows absolutely nothing about truth, word of honour, honesty etc.

  • Kenneth Maimane - 2013-11-21 20:11

    I wish the govt could establish special courts to deal with non payers.those who will not pay must get off our freeways.cosatu must stop this nonsense of siding with the oppressors or else we all join amcu.

      Kenneth Maimane - 2013-11-21 20:28

      Just like what happened in mining,cosatu were too comfortable and workers decided to join another party instead of the enemy=solidarity

      Hluvukani Craig Mabasa - 2013-11-21 20:33

      Who are the oppressors kenny or you are too blind or brainwashed,or maybe too comfortable to see,most of us can't afford anc e tolls.

      Lil Boxing Coach - 2013-11-21 20:50

      Do u speak for the poor who etolls will hit the most? Clearly money is not an issue for you Kenneth... But what about those who can barely afford their 'daily bread'? The cost of living will increase... Even the taxis raised their fees 1 November in anticipation.

      Rivashan Lee Sakaran - 2013-11-21 20:53

      Hluvukani...that's why so many people are comparing ANC to the NP of the past and that is why the DA says ANC is like the racist government. They are effecting the separation not the same way as NP did in Apartheid but basically they are reserving the roads for the upper class and those who cannot afford it must suffer elsewhere.

      Kenneth Maimane - 2013-11-21 21:03

      The oppresors are the boers who fight govt at every turn.there are no poor whites in sa unless by their own tolls or face the music good night.some of us have wives to please.

      Leanne Shanks - 2013-11-21 21:45

      Kenneth, how can 8% of the population STILL be opressing you?????????? Can you still please your wife after your govt's just f#*kd you over! Sorry, you asked for that one!

      Ridwan Halim - 2013-11-21 21:48

      Yes Ken-nie! Im sure you will be @ the front of that non-paying queue hey? Our freeways? Dude, i wonder if you ever paid a single cent to SARS?

      Ridwan Halim - 2013-11-21 21:48

      Yes Ken-nie! Im sure you will be @ the front of that non-paying queue hey? Our freeways? Dude, i wonder if you ever paid a single cent to SARS?

      Joe Soapie - 2013-11-22 09:59

      // those who will not pay must get off our freeways // I intend to. I will not support a system where over 50% of the funds gathered from e-tolls LEAVE the country instead of being placed into a fund which will then, hopefully, be used to upgrade our roads even more. If you want to be an idiot and support blatant robbery, be my guest.

      Joe Soapie - 2013-11-22 10:00

      // The oppresors are the boers who fight govt at every turn. // Geeze, you need to remove that chip on your shoulder. It's people like you who hold this country back.

  • graeme.parsons - 2013-11-21 20:15

    Seems like good policy to me!

      Mandla Mfanta - 2013-11-21 21:38

      So you gonna vote DA just to prevent etol. Tell me something else please.

      Pete Mears - 2013-12-05 04:50

      Here's something else. It's BECAUSE EToll is here that I'm voting DA.

  • Mark Russell - 2013-11-21 20:16

    Lol! Billboards destructive? Where to start? Hundreds of cases of fraudulent activity by ANC members and government officials, wasteful spending of tax payers money on an epic scale, complete lack of accountability across the board for any actions or lack thereof to just start scratching. The reality is that the only reasons that the ANC want to put etolls in place is to enrich themselves and because the funds already recovered for the project through fuel taxes, vehicle registrations and funds allocated to the roads fund have been misappropriated or spent on something else that it was not meant for. Now that is pretty destructive! Billboards being destructive is the best they can come up with?

  • pws69 - 2013-11-21 20:20

    ANC actions are destructive in the extreme, the DA is just telling the truth. The truth always hurts when you are dishonest, thieving, conniving, corrupt scum.

  • Buttonmenzi Menzi - 2013-11-21 20:20

    It is fascinating to observe politicians on their mission to galvanising electorate to vote on their favour next year. Most informed people they have their criteria that they check before they cast vote, however, it is imperative that all civilian know that voting for tyranny is toxic for the country and to our future generations. Remember we're not all politicians but politics is a beverage of every sentient being that affect all spheres of life

  • Roger Plaatjies - 2013-11-21 20:21

    E-toll improving roads & make the poor poorer while the cANCer increase they salaries. The cANCer government want E-toll & not the people of Gauteng, if the people of Gauteng want E-toll why are they complaining? Is E-toll 4 the people or 4 the fat-cats of the ANC?

  • Mzi Ngubane - 2013-11-21 20:21

    Mr. Ntuli, we know that DA is BANKRUPT when its come to then can you tell us something we don't know about them if any...because all we know about them by now is that they are one of those political parties in this country who are fighting to protect the interest of White people like FF Plus and Afriforum...and the different with them is that they are using some African puppets to win votes from unsuspecting African.

      Leanne Shanks - 2013-11-21 23:38

      You're obviously speaking from a position of ignorance - go research the DA a bit before you diss them - you may be surprised at how they fought apartheid, then again, it seems as though you don't want to see anything beyond the blinkers which cover your eyes. It's sad that you'll listen to the propoganda out there - sure, no political party is perfect, but have a look at what the ANC have done for this country, or not done!!!

      Kenny Williams - 2014-01-13 22:54

      Mzi, why don't you come and live here in the best run province in SA. And you say the DA have no policies? Here in the Cape, corruption is nipped nipped in the bud. The DA may not have much money but at least they don't steal taxpayers money to enrich the DA politicians. So you are happy with Nkandla, arms deal, R1,3 million cars for premiers (and some buy 3 of these just for fun). You my friend are the African Puppet.

  • Mzi Ngubane - 2013-11-21 20:21

      Tersia Louw - 2013-11-21 22:09

      ANC is bankrupt when it comes to good governance and morals. The people who will suffer the most are the poorest of the poor when the effect of increased transport costs trickle down. So please, Mzi, tell me who gives a cr@p about whom?

      Theunis De Jongh - 2013-11-26 13:43

      A policy that is not DELIVERED is as good as no policy at all. What is it with the ANC voters and policies? Service delivery is surely backed by a nice policy somewhere, yet ... the voters complain.

  • Joel Mabeke - 2013-11-21 20:22

    Next year it will be my first time voting ,im still shopping around for a party but every time i come to this forum i've been called names,im told im lazy,im a vandalist,uneducated,a troll etc yet the majority of people here expect us potential voters especially us blacks to vote DA .you guys should be welcoming us ,nuturing us,loving us and showing us that by chosing DA we will work together as a united nation.

      Ryno Van Jaarsveld - 2013-11-21 20:27

      I understand your viewpoint, but read all the comments, it goes both ways. I also only recently decided to part with My ANC...

      Adam Botshelo - 2013-11-21 20:58

      i do not care how people label me for my skin colour, all i want is a party that will fix all this mess. for the love of my country.

      Tersia Louw - 2013-11-21 22:09

      Hear, hear, Adam.

      Leanne Shanks - 2013-11-21 23:59

      I agree with Paul, can't we just see ourselves as people, not colour? I want my boy to grow up in a country where his view and his existence are respected, as well as yours' and your childrens'! Can't we try and stand outside of our colour; look around; see if things are really working for us; look for alternatives and go with the best one offered? When you buy a car, don't you look for the best deal?? Why not for a government?? I'm SOOOOO tired of being blamed for the fact that I'm white! Do you think I chose to be this colour? Did you choose to be the colour you are? Nope, we're all just who we're supposed to be, so let's just f*#king well get on with it and try and sort our ailing country out?! There'll always be detractors, people who make their living from taking what is not theirs, who have a sense of entitlement 'cos they were previously disadvantaged - well, according to our current govt, "they're" actually now supposed to be "advantaged", but are they??... Are you doing better now that there's democracy in this country...? Seriously, are you really better off, truly?? Have all the promises which were made by the ANC come to fuition in your life?? Be honest with your answer, please? If you actually care to sit down and examine the cold hard truth of the matter, you may find that you've been cheated out of the dream you were sold - and that a very few people in this country are "living the dream", and most of the ones who are, aren't white.....! Just sayin'!

      Pete Mears - 2013-12-05 04:55

      Joel, you are not old enough to realise that in the real world nobody wipes your arse. Do what you may but for heavens sake, don't sound like a victim. Women are clever, they go for the guy with the plans. Make a plan, but don't tell the world what they 'must' do. We all know what we must do. For the time being everybody supports a corrupt and incompetent government, regardless of what their motives are.
