[LISTEN] Outa demands that fuel prices be capped at R15 per litre

The Democratic Alliance and the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse together with several taxi organisations have called on the government to act on the rising fuel costs.

Chief Operating Officer at Outa Ben Theron says they handed over a memorandum of demands to officials from the Department of Treasury.

At the moment we are over R16 per litre of petrol so what we are asking for is for it to be capped at R15. We are asking for a R1 decrease.

  • The RAF should be put under administration because of the maladministration and corruption taking place there.
  • Something should be done at a political level.
