The panel set up by Gauteng premier David Makhura to look into the effect of e-tolling in the province will meet for the first time today.

HumanIPO reported last week Makhura announced a panel of 15 people to review the e-toll policy and report back to the provincial government with recommendations by November 30, 2014.

The panel will provide monthly progress reports to the Gauteng provincial government up until the final report, with the first meeting taking place today, reports the South African Press Association (SAPA).

The meeting will start with a photo opportunity before the panel begins discussions on the controversial e-tolling system.

The panel will be chaired by Muxe Nkondo, with other members to include Patricia Hanekom, John Ngcebetsha, Vuyo Mahlathi, Luci Abrahams, Fiona Tregenna, Anna Mokgokong, John Sampson, Lauretta Teffo, and Chris Malikane, while five further panelists are still to be appointed.
