Sanral CEO quits

 

Johannesburg - The SA National Roads Agency (Sanral) said its immediate priority is to ensure that it continues to perform its essential role in operating and maintaining South Africa's national roads, following the resignation of CEO Nazir Alli.

"The immediate focus and priority of the board is to ensure that Sanral continues to perform its essential role in operating and maintaining more than 16 000km of national roads across South Africa," chairperson Tembakazi Mnyaka said in a statement. 

"The board will ensure that Sanral contributes to and cooperates with the deliberations now under way," he said.

Alli resigned at a meeting on Monday, the agency said.

Alli would continue in his post until June 3, Mnyaka said.

He thanked Alli for his contribution since Sanral's inception in 1998. Sanral did not give reasons for Alli's resignation. 

On Friday cabinet appointed a special committee, to be chaired by Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe, to coordinate work around the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project.

The committee would, among other things, try and ensure Sanral's financial stability is not affected by the halt to e-tolling. The toll fees would have been used to repay Sanral's R20bn debt. 

The Democratic Alliance said last week it had asked Public Protector Thuli Madonsela to probe e-toll collection contracts.

A full court review will be carried out to determine the future of the Gauteng tolling system.
