Telkom won't suspend data services to eNatis - RMTC

Road Management Traffic Cooperation (RMTC) CEO, Advocate Makhosini Msibi, says all clients will be served despite threats that Telkom will terminate all data services to the National Traffic Information System (eNatis).

In terms of the court papers, until Thursday there would not be any action taken to jeopardise our service providers.

Telkom is not party to the court papers, the people that are at call with us, Tasima - in the latest affidavit that we are served with on Friday - confirmed that there will be no tampering in terms of the Telkom lines.

The company providing the eNatis system used at traffic offices nationwide, Tasima, owes Telkom R8 million.

Msibi explains that in an event where the eNatis system is disrupted, the public will not be able to register their vehicles, apply for renewing driver’s licenses and car manufacturers will not be able to register new vehicles.

The public should not even panic, we have made arrangements and ensured we have a risk management plan. It's not gonna happen that our clients will be turned back.
