This is what the ANC and the SABC do not want you to see….
Produced and published by Shaun Gunning, this video (and supporting document) is without a doubt the most comprehensive and emphatic argument for why the E-Tolls project cannot succeed without major taxpayer support to the tune of billions of Rands in bailouts over the course of the next few decades.

Cosatu seems confident that civil disobedience will prevent the success of e-tolling, while the DA remains firm on its stance, that it can stop the system if elected into government. We talk to M&G associate editor Phillip De Wet about the likelihood of these campaigns succeeding, and whether Johannesburg motorists should purchase e-tags.
Nandos have nailed it, once again by channeling the age old philosophy that you ought to at least buy someone dinner before you screw them. This ad was in most of Johannesburg’s daily papers this morning. [Pic : Twitter]
Yup, it actually happened. At midnight last night, Gauteng’s multi-billion rand etoll network went live.
We were hoping the day would never arrive. Alas, Transport Minister Dipuo Peter confirmed that e-tolling of Gauteng’s roads will officially start on Tuesday, 3 December. Just in time for the festive season.
Well, this is just delightful. An outspoken but thus-far anonymous critic of the e-Tolls system in Johannesburg has erected massive advertising-grade billboards on the side of the N1 and N3, reading “E-tolls. Proudly brought to you by the ANC.”
Yesterday, the Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (Outa) stood up, crossed their hearts, and said that they needed one million bucks to cover their legals fees in their continued fight against E-tolls in Gauteng. It took less than 24 hours for the DA to send that cash their way.
