The Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance
said it is concerned about the recent allegations against the South African
National Roads Agency Limited that it is entering the political arena.
Outa Chairman Wayne Duvenage said this is
seriously worrying as they start to blur the line of separation between party
This is after Sanral Spokesperson Vusi Mona
attacked the Democratic Alliance’s use of eTolls for political gain.
Duvenage explains that there is a clear
line between the role of the state and state owned entities and politics.
He said that as Outa they are concerned
that Sanral are making statements that are mudslinging against political
parties such as the Democratic Alliance for using e-tolling as a politicking
“We would like to caution Sanral that they
need to play their role in dealing with service issues related to the public and
not to align themselves with political statements and slandering against
political parties,” added Duvenage.
He furthermore added that it is
particularly worrying and a very serious concern to Outa.
