Johannesburg - Church leaders vowed on Monday to refuse to pay to use Gauteng freeways and called on others to do the same.
“We... church leaders, have therefore decided to publicly declare our intention to refuse to buy e-tags and to refuse to pay this unjust e-toll,” they said in a statement.
“... We call on all other church leaders, members of our churches and all South Africans who support democracy to do the same.”
The leaders, including SA Council of Churches president Bishop Jo Seoka, the Central Methodist Mission's Bishop Paul Verryn, and Methodist Church of Southern Africa presiding Bishop Zipho Siwa, said the decision had not been easy.
However, it had to be made as the government was not listening to the people.
