Johannesburg - The “drive-slow” protest against e-tolling started just after 9am on Thursday in Braamfontein and Katlehong, east of Johannesburg.
People were singing “Senzeni na” (What have we done (to deserve this) outside Cosatu House to kickstart the protest.
Last week, Cosatu threatened to remove toll gantries “nicely”, occupy Gauteng streets, and block freeways during the protest.
The SA National Roads Agency Limited has been at the forefront of the e-tolling project in Gauteng, but the Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (Outa) brought a court application to have the project scrapped.
The court has yet to make a ruling following a judicial review of the system. - Sapa
