The SA National Roads Agency (Sanral) has suspended the process of pursuing e-toll debt.

Motorists who have racked up bills by failing to pay e-tolls in Gauteng are off the hook for past debt.

Sanral says the move is in response to the initiative led by President Cyril Ramaphosa to address the e-tolls payment impasse. Sanral says the decision will be monitored and reviewed according to prevailing circumstances and the e-toll system will remain in force.

Sanral spokesperson Vusi Mona talks to Business Day TV about how this decision will affect the agency, while Rudi Heyneke from the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) discusses Sanral’s sudden change of heart.
