A lone ranger who is apparently in favour of Gauteng's e-toll project had to rescued by police during an anti-toll protest in Pretoria, according to a report on Thursday.

Paul de Beer held up a hand-written white placard on a stick saying, “Stop moaning, pay e-toll”, at a protest in Pretoria organised by Cosatu.

Upset Cosatu members descended onto him and broke his placard, reported Beeld newspaper. The police then intervened and escorted him to safety. – Sapa
