Johannesburg - An aircraft trailing a banner reading “fight e-tolls, vote DA” took to the skies of Gauteng again on Thursday during a DA rally.

Scores of Democratic Alliance supporters gathered outside the Gauteng provincial legislature to protests against the e-tolling of Gauteng highways.

They carried placards reading “Mmuso wa Zuma rea o chencha” (We are changing Zuma's government).

The aerial banner made its first appearance on Tuesday, the day e-tolling came into effect.

DA member Edward Tshabalala said government had to be challenged to show that the people would govern.

“Every South African must unite in fighting e-tolls,” he said.

Another DA supporter, Mavis Makola, said the African National Congress government was on a mission to make people poor.

“The ANC has failed its people and it's about time to vote against e-tolls,” she said.

A Freedom Front Plus application to stop e-tolls was struck from the roll by the High Court in Pretoria on Monday, for lack of urgency.
