ANC Gauteng People’s March Against e-Tolls Being Used As ‘Voting Fodder’ – DA
Masses are expected to join the march against e-tolls in Pretoria. The ANC in Gauteng, Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa), Congress of SA Trade Unions (Cosatu) and other civil organizations will also join the march and reiterate its stance on the scrapping of e-tolls.
The march is expected to start at 09:00 and proceed from Burgers Park to the Union Buildings.
It is said that the march will be peaceful.
On Monday, Cosatu provincial secretary Dumisani Dakile on Monday October 29 vowed to bring an end to the controversial e-tolls.
We are quite certain because 95% are not paying this particular e-toll. We can tell without any doubt, that there is not even a single department in Gauteng that pays for this [thing]. The momentum is very high, so people must continue to boycott [it].
However, the People’s March has been labelled by the Democratic Alliance (DA) has as “just another election ploy” by the ANC ahead of next year’s general elections.
This clearly indicates that e-tolls are once again being used as voting fodder ahead of 2019 General elections.
The ANC in Gauteng is Marching againts "itself" to the Union Buildings, To tell itself to scrap the #etolls that "itself" implemented and approved. And yet again to complain to "itself" on how Corrupt and Messed up it is.
