JOZI DRIVE SLOW PROTEST: Cosatu reports that 300 cars took part in its "drive slow" through Johannesburg with the motorcade working its way along the R21, R24, N12, and the N3.

The Congress of SA Trade Union (Cosatu) reports that 300 cars took part in its "drive slow" e-tolling protest action on Johannesburg freeways on May 31 2013.

Cosatu Gauteng secretary, Dumisani Dakile, said: "I think there's about 300. So far so good, our target was 100 and we've exceeded that.

"It shows the level of support we have," he said.


The motorcade protest took place on the R24 in Kempton Park. A number of drivers and organisations have joined the protest, including the Southern African Catholic Bishops' Conference (SACBC).

The "drive slow" was expected to move from the R24 to the R21 North and return to the R21 South. The route would then follow the R21, R24, N12, and the N3 South to Katlehong.


Earlier in May 2013, we reported that the Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (Outa) requested that government suspend e-tolling if it wants to support economic growth.

Outa chairman Wayne Duvenage said the organisation supported President Jacob Zuma's call for South Africans to promote activities that enhanced economic performance.

However, Zuma should suspend e-tolling, Duvenage said.
