sanral thumb100 Fin24 reports that the board of directors of the SA National Roads Agency (Sanral) is set to begin a recruitment drive to find a new CEO as the term of incumbent Skhumbuzo Macozoma is coming to an end.

According to a statement issued by Sanral on Tuesday, Macozoma's term will end on 30 November 2021 and it will be embarking on a recruitment process to recommend a suitable candidate for appointment by the Minister of Transport before 1 December 2021. Macozoma was appointed CEO in 2016. He had previously been the CEO of Electronic Toll Collection, which is contracted to collect e-tolls on behalf of Sanral. E-tolls, which are based on a user-pays principle, have been a thorn in Sanral's side for some years and have faced considerable resistance. Government has not yet announced a decision on the way forward for the programme. Deputy Minister of Transport Sindisiwe Chikunga recently indicated that e-tolls remained in force.
