An announcement about the future of e-tolls may take place on Thursday

The battle for control of Johannesburg, SA’s economic hub, will continue this week as the council sits again to try to elect Herman Mashaba’s replacement as mayor.

The DA, EFF and ANC are all fielding candidates for the position. The EFF has nominated its regional chair and caucus leader, Musa Novela, for the post, while the DA has proposed its regional leader and finance member of the mayoral committee , Funzela Ngobeni. The ANC’s regional chair, Geoff Makhubo, will represent the party in the contest.

Gauteng motorists have not been paying their e-toll bills. Roads agency Sanral said it is collecting only 25%-30% of what it should be collecting from e-tolls on Gauteng freeways.This is the last week that parliament is sitting, after which it will go into recess until the end of January. The National Assembly will also receive a report from the portfolio committee on justice that recommends not to restore advocates Nomgcobo Jiba and Lawrence Mrwebi to their positions in the National Prosecuting Authority .Jiba was a deputy national director of public prosecutions, the second in command at the NPA; Mrwebi headed the special directorate of public prosecutions.
