The E-Tolls Saga PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The E-Tolls Saga free pdf The e-tolls saga recounts the journey of Wayne 'Big Billy goat-gruff' Duvenage (as a listener on Talk Radio 702 described him) from a conscientious corporate CEO into the role of corporate activist pitting all his energy and resources into fighting the controversial decision by the 'trolls' who sought to implement electronic tolling to finance a major road construction project in Gauteng, the economic heartland of southern Africa. The Opposition to Urban Tolling Alliance (OUTA) sprung up from nothing to a highly rated brand in the not-for-profit space in a matter of a few months, in the process raising R11 million for litigation. Wayne Duvenage's leadership was crucial to the success. Paradoxically, it was a success that failed. Although OUTA lost its legal battle, its opponent, the South African National Roads Agency Ltd (SANRAL), has been the ultimate loser of the larger war. Electronic tolling has been a disaster for SANRAL and an embarrassment for the South African government under President Jacob Zuma as the saga continues to unfold.
