The OUTA story: From e-toll boycott to defence of the taxpayer Activism against tax abuse and state capture

Speaker: Wayne Duvenage, Chief Executive Officer, OUTA

Wayne Duvenage, Chief Executive Officer of the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (OUTA), will detail OUTA’s journey, its close calls with near closure, and the challenges it faced and overcame to achieve its broader mandate as tax abuse watchdog.  Wayne will also provide a high-level exposure of the modus operandi of state capture with particular reference to State Owned Enterprises (SOEs).

Born in 2012, OUTA is a Civil Action Organisation established to challenge corruption and hold the guilty accountable. While initially challenging Gauteng’s e-Tolls, OUTA has grown and developed into an organisation equipped with in-house litigation, research, investigation, communication and administrative teams. Its crew of 40 are geared up to expose and challenge inefficiencies, maladministration and corruption within the state. OUTA’s role is to challenge the issues and hold those responsible for poor governance and corruption to account. Our aim is to halt wasteful expenditure and irrational decisions which are not in the best interests of society.

The FMF is an independent, non-profit, public benefit organisation, created in 1975 by pro-free market business and civil society national bodies to work for a non-racial, free and prosperous South Africa. As a policy organisation it promotes sound economic policies and the principles of good law. As a think tank it seeks and puts forward solutions to some of the country’s most pressing problems: unemployment, poverty, growth, education, health care, electricity supply, and more. The FMF was instrumental in the post-apartheid negotiations and directly influenced the Constitutional Commission to include the property rights clause: a critical cornerstone of economic freedom.
