    The public transport system in Gauteng is as effective as Zuma’s presidential ability. utterly useless. Everyone is so focused on him using a couple hundred million on a house, it would not surprise me if billions are just unaccounted for just slowly ringing the country of its collective wealth, much like the Zimbabwe situation. The gautrain would be brilliant, if you worked at one station, and lived in another station. The simple truth is that the current gov is not in it for the people, regardless of race or background, there are after self worth, and have very cleverly created a completely corrupt system where everyone has their hands in everyone elses dirty pockets. This cannot be stopped with a little web page of disgruntled people. We simply cannot “fight” at the level they can, we we have moral, and they simply do not. They are happy to make personal gain from others misfortunes. This is exactly what they want, while everyone is to busy talking and debating, they are extracting and destroying. there is no positive end to this tail, other than the massive wealth of a handful of people, and the unnecessary deaths of millions. you cannot use 1st world tactics when fighting a 3rd world system… It will not stop to listen to us.

    A true and honest story, I have driven through the streets in JHB central just after mid night, with a boot full of blankets, and packets of food. The government in South Africa has no intention of saving a soul, from taking away any pain, from making South Africa what it really can be. Africa as a continent is one of the most naturally wealthy countries in the world, it has gold, oil, diamonds, futile ground, is central to the rest of the globe, has every climate imaginable… this list can go on. and there are only two issues that are causing anything from happening, and that is greed, and the lack of education… an educated public would never allow a government like this.

    the current leaders could have more than they ever need, and could have a country with no poverty, of high education, a world super power. but here we sit… fighting over a road toll… so small against what the reality is.

    I have registered with e-Toll, on a prepaid basis, as I do not have a credit card. I deposited R200 by EFT, but my account will not activate until I pay and activation fee of R50. This cannot be deducted from my balance, as this was paid by eft – activation fee must be paid by credit card! Brilliant, Sanral!

  • Faizel

    Well Mr Zuma says that “he cannot pay for the upgrades on his home because he never asked for it” , well Mr zuma why should we pay E-TOLL we too have not asked for it , what is good for the Gose should be good for the Gander !!! i am agaist E-TOLL it is criminal for us to pay something that was forced on to us ,

  • DEE

    2 Potholes later….or more like 2 mini sink holes on a major Highway caused damage to: 1) My front right tyre & rim and 2) dis-aligned my the cars’ alignment…to the cost of over R550.00…and I must pay ‘E-Toll’!!!! What a joke…!!!!
    ANC = “ANOTHER N’KANDLA COLLABORATON” TABOO!! NO TO E-TOLL!!!!!

  • Ferdi

    No to E-toll. It’s Simple – 100 000 people not paying with 10 bills each = 1 mil court cases, where to prosecute everybody????????? Isn’t it correct when saying each toll gate = a seperate offence thus having to prosecute me for every offence seperately??? I would like to hear some oppinions from those who know and study what the law says.

  • dawg

    the e-toll is good because it will encourage public transport usage :)

    • Bold man

      What public transport? And do tell me how do reps, landscapers, builders, delivery companies etc make use of public transport? The only people who can make use of public transport for work are those that work at the same location everyday…

  • guest

    No to “E-nkandla” fund ;-)

  • Frans

    I dont understand how other provinces cant help out in fighting the system. How can there only be 769xxx people. This is a disgrace, i am from the eastern cape and DO NOT support e-tag but cant understand how weak some other people from different provinces are to not give damn as it affects us all.

  • kwelio

    Lets put it this way… I give them the middel finger every time I go under one. Does that count as a no? They should have quite a few pics of me by now.u

    • Anti Fascism

      Me too, the middle finger. I haven’t seen any other road users doing it.
      The resistance against e-tolls should be more fierce, otherwise we are going to loose the battle.

  • JOHN

    NO…!!! absolutely NO…!!!

  • unfair

    hell no!!!! we are all struggling to keep our heads above water already….

  • Nicolene

    No to E-toll

  • confused

    E-toll is just thinking about themselves. monies are suppose to go to the road infrastructure. Roads in general in south Africa are falling apart. Where is all this money collected so far. And e-toll what are you solutions to the problems we have, cloning of number plates under privilege families that cant afford the extra costs every month ect?
