E-toll review panel vs Peters.

05.11.2014

WE’LL be the first to admit that Transport Minister, Dipuo Peters, is not exactly the most popular person in the public eye at the moment. However, her comment, this past week, regarding the e-toll panel, will certainly not have earned her many more supporters.

On Tuesday she announced that she - along with her team - would withdraw from the e-tolls review panel proceedings if they were challenged or, as she put it, “taken on.”

The minister mentioned that she wasn’t under the impression that she, along with her team, would be questioned by legal experts with regards to the e-toll system and if she were aware, that she would have had a lawyer present.

The process took place in Pretoria where the panel - appointed by Gauteng premier David Makhura - aimed to  examine the economic and social impact of the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project and the e-tolling system, set up to fund it.

The panel should present its findings to Makhura at the end of the month.
