E-tolling judgment illustrates failure of media and citizens
Being a citizen can be hard work.
On the other hand, if you’re not willing to put in some effort then don’t complain when the government does whatever it wants.
(Some advice I need to take myself.)
But maybe the (mostly) middle class citizens, who ignored the original announcement as well as the physical evidence of gantries being built all across the newly upgraded freeways of Gauteng, cannot escape responsibility. Surely, if citizens want the government to listen to them, then they have to remain vigilant about government decisions affecting them and must be prepared to organise against such plans from an early stage?
