The DA has come out against Transport Minister Jeff Radebe saying he must desist himself from self-gratification that his new electronic National Traffic information system (eNatis) has problems.
Stuart Farrow of the DA says that reports have shown that after eNatis was given an ‘all clear’ from the minister last week, the system is still not fully operational.
A Tshwane metro police spokesperson Superintendent Alta Fourie is quoted in a statement saying that the system kept shutting down on Thursday. Fourie says that in certain testing and licensing stations, passwords had been reportedly changed without public notice. It is believed that this caused a lot of frustration and anger
Farrow says that the system is to help improve client services, but says this is not happening.
The DA appeals to the minister to properly inform the public about the logistics around the new system. Farrow also says that the success of the implementation of eNatis depends on proper communication between the relevant stakeholders.
