Cape Town – Tbo Touch revealed to Gareth Cliff that he doesn’t own e-tags for his cars, nor does he support e-tolling.

In August last year, Sanral released a video showing Tbo Touch saying “yes” to e-tolls. 

He, along with Minie Dlamini and Khanyi Mbau were made the faces of Sanral’s marketing campaign which urged motorists to buy e-tags.

Watch the video here:

Now, the radio DJ has admitted he only did it for the money.

Talking to Gareth Cliff on CliffCentral, in the wake of their business venture Touch Central, Tbo touch said: “I don’t even have an e-tag. I lied. I don’t. Go down to my car right now. Yeah‚ go check.”

He then gave reasoning as to why he simply couldn’t turn Sanral’s offer down.

“I’ve got two boys, they both go to private schools okay. There’s things I would do because it’s not going to hurt me, it’s not going to change the price of milk.

“So, they called me, ‘I got an offer for you’, why not?”
