Two weeks time, decision on e-tolls will be made- vow ‘Mr Fix It’

This follows announcement by transport minister Fikile Mbalula to Parliament that it will be resolved in two weeks time. He addressed National Council of Provinces sitting.

The last time Mbalula promised to put this matte to bed was in March but they missed the deadline.

According to the minister, this back and forth is as result of consultations with all relevant stakeholders, chiefly Treasury.

“We are engaging with the Treasury and we are at the tail-end of our processes. We expect that in the next two weeks we should be back to cabinet. Before we table our budget vote speech, we should have gone to you and to the public to announce the cabinet decision on the e-tolls.

“It has taken longer than we would have liked. We thought by now we would have finalised but unfortunately it’s a big decision. We are not working alone. We go back and forth with Treasury on these issues, and that’s how it is,” said Mbalula.

The controversial e-toll has seen offensive move from opposition parties, including OUTA that took the matter the matter before court.

ANC in Gauteng, has also refused to play ball by declaring its’ not interested in this user-pay principle, including Premier David Makhura.

Well, we can’t wait for the final decision on this nightmare, “Mr Fix It”, in two-weeks’ time of course.
