“All those who had bought the e-tags need to be afforded an opportunity to burn them,” he told reporters in Johannesburg.
This was a resolution made by the Congress of SA Trade Unions’ (Cosatu) provincial executive committee at a meeting last week.
“It further resolved that all those who have received their monthly bill should also be afforded the opportunity to burn them.”
Dakile said the protest would include a drive-slow on October 18 to the SA National Roads Agency Limited’s (Sanral) office. E-tags and bills would be burnt in front of the office.
Cosatu called on Gauteng motorists to not buy e-tags or pay their bills.
Dakile said motorists should not be bullied by what he called “unlawful Sanral roadblocks” on highways.
