This is over and above R372m for invoices and postal services, according to a report.

Despite the South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) battling to repay R20-billion capital costs for the erection of e-toll gantries around Gauteng highways, the company paid R225 million to Swedish and Austrian companies for e-tags.

In a written parliamentary response to DA’s Christine Hunsinger, Transport Minister Joe Maswanganyi revealed Kapsch Trafficom AB from Sweden received just more than R167 million.

Q-Free ASA, from Austria, was paid almost R58 million for similar services. Maswanganyi said

E-toll contractor denies shady dealing with arms deal company
The company’s executive board member Andre Laux denied that it had improper dealings with arms manufacturing company, SAAB &ndas; which admitted in June to paying bribes of more than R24-million to ensure it was picked to supply Gripen jets to South Africa in the arms deal.

“We firmly reject any speculation linking Kapsch TrafficCom and the arms deals.
