The Electronic National Traffic Information System (eNaTIS) should assist improve efficiency of the Department of Traffic and Transport (DTT), and ultimately service delivery of DTT to the nation.
This was said by the Minister of Public Works and Transport Mr. Matjato Moteane during the recent visit of the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) of South Africa to Lesotho.
He indicated that the expectation is that the system should perform as it does in South Africa, as it is the same system, and has the ability to offer services such as online motor vehicle registration and renewals, without necessarily having to go queue at DTT.
“Basotho are looking up to us to improve services and if eNaTIS is capable of assisting us to achieve this, then let us ensure we use it to our advantage, so that queues at the DTT can be the thing of the past,” he reiterated.
The Chief Executive Officer of RTMS Adv. Makhosini Msibi echoed the Minister’s words by assuring attendees that eNaTIS offers very convenient online services where road users are not required to go to the centres to be serviced.
He said RTMC is willing and capable to assist Lesotho to move to this stage, so that efficiency is the order of the day through full effective and usage of the system.
In his speech, the Road Fund Chief Executive Officer Mr. Nkekeletse Makara said Road Fund is willing to support full implementation of the system, adding that improved service would not only benefit the road users but also improve revenue collection that will enable government to access all levies due to it, as well as enable government agencies such as the Road Fund to deliver on their mandate efficiently and as per expectation.
RTMC administers the eNaTIS system that has been rolled out to other countries in Southern Africa like Lesotho and Namibia. The outcome of the recent visit of RTMC to Lesotho will be an improve Memorandum of Understanding, aimed at ensuring that eNaTIS performs as per expectation.
eNaTIS is implemented by the Ministry of Public Works and Transport through the Department of Traffic and Transport and supported technically and financially by the Road Fund.
