Mbalula promises e-toll solution again

Minister of Transport Fikile Mbalula says that a solution to e-tolls will be announced in October, this time "for sure".

Mbalula has been promising an announcement on e-tolls since he took office in May 2019 with several deadlines come and gone. Speaking at a press briefing in Pretoria today, Mbalula said the decision would be made by the medium-term budget policy statement in October.

Mbalula said that a decision had been taken by Cabinet a while ago which would have impacted on the fuel levy. Among the suggestions tabled to pay for e-tolls in the past has been an increase to the fuel levy in Gauteng.

However, Mbalula says this is no longer an option.


Court orders ANC to pay R120m for 2019 election banners

The African National Congress has failed to overturn a previous court ruling that it must pay R120-million to a KwaZulu-Natal-based marketing company for the supply and erection of PVC banners in the run-up to the 2019 elections.

The attorney acting for the company, Ezulweni Investments, has now said that unless the party pays up by close of business today, it will consider initiating liquidation proceedings.

A full bench of three judges sitting in the South Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg dismissed the ANC’s appeal, with costs, and confirmed a previous order that the money was owed and must be paid.

The Judge said the ANC was liable to pay the debt on the basis of an verbal agreement.


Eskom implements Stage 6 load-shedding

Power utility Eskom has implemented Stage 6 load-shedding, from 2pm today until midnight, as the unlawful strike by employees continues.

Stage 4 load-shedding will then be implemented from midnight to 5am on Friday, followed by Stage 6 from 5am to midnight.

A minimum of Stage 4 will be required continuously over the weekend.

Eskom said due to the unlawful and unprotected strike, which has caused widespread disruption to Eskom’s power plants, the power utility is unable to return some generators to service.
