[LISTEN] Conference has taken a firm decision to scrap e-tolls - Panyaza Lesufi
Newly elected deputy chairperson of the African National Congress (ANC) in Gauteng, Panyaza Lesufi says a task team will be appointed to look into the scrapping of the controversial e-tolling system.
This is one of many resolutions taken at the provincial conference at the weekend.
Asked whether this is plausible, Lesufi says the necessary mechanisms will be put in place.
The reality is these E-tolls are unpopular with our people and as a popular movement, how do we go the opposite direction of that particular feeling? We have taken a decision, let those E-tolls be terminated and let the team that will manage this process engage on those modalities to check the costs, the running and all other related matters.Panyaza Lesufi, deputy chairperson of the ANC in Gauteng
Commenting on Former MEC for Health Qedani Mahlangu and Brian Hlongwa's re-election into to the provinces executive committee, Lesufi says they are working to resolve matters involving both members.
Conference instructed us to move with speed and resolve all outstanding matters.Panyaza Lesufi, deputy chairperson of the ANC in Gauteng
