Vehicle owners may bear the brunt for eNatis’ unpaid Telkom account

Vehicle owners may bear the consequences of the incapability of eNatis to pay its Telkom account of R8 million. In terms of the National Road Traffic Act motorists may be fined if their vehicle licences are not renewed in time, says Adv. Anton Alberts, the FF Plus' parliamentary spokesman on transport.

According to Adv. Alberts an employee of eNatis yesterday (Thursday 20 April) confirmed to the FF Plus that their systems are "offline" due to the outstanding account and that eNatis and Telkom are busy with negotiations to find a solution.

He says the FF Plus wrote a letter to the minister of transport, Joe Maswanganyi, in which he is asked to intervene urgently and to determine how the problem arose.

"It is a shame that thousands of vehicle owners may be fined due to the incompetence of the eNatis management. If there was negligence involved, the guilty persons must be held responsible.

"It is understood that there is a dispute between Telkom and eNatis regarding the account but arrangements have to be made for eNatis to stay online pending a solution to the dispute.

"Vehicle owners are at the mercy of a dysfunctional government. The FF Plus therefore requested the minister to urgently intervene and find a solution in the interest of motorists," says Adv. Alberts.
