Johannesburg -

Cosatu will protest against e-tolling in Gauteng on Thursday morning by driving slowly on highways in Ekurhuleni and Johannesburg during peak hour.

The two protests would take place on some of Johannesburg's busiest highways - the N1, M2, M1, N3, N12, R24, and R21. About 100 cars were expected on each route.

The “slow drive” protest would start around 8am.

Cosatu leaders, full-time shop stewards, and leaders of Cosatu affiliates were expected to participate.

Cosatu Gauteng secretary Dumisani Dakile urged motorists who joined the protest to drive with their headlights and hazard lights on. Some cars would also have banners.

Cosatu said it had received permission to protest from both the Johannesburg and Ekurhuleni metros. It had also wanted to protest in Pretoria, but did not receive permission. - Sapa
