Outa confident of a win in case against e-tolls

The South African National Roads Agency (Sanral) is chasing a trucking firm in court for unpaid e-toll fees.

Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) chairman, Wayne Duvenage, says Outa has filed responding pleas to the summonses issued for outstanding e-toll payments.

Outa has been advocating against Sanral's e-toll system saying it's unjust and illegal.

Duvenage says Sanral bullies the public.

Many of the reasons why Sanral was thrown out to e-toll the Western Cape are applicable in this case.
