File: There have been several delays in government's decision on the future of the controversial system.
Mbalula was speaking on the sidelines of the festive road safety operations launch in Johannesburg.
He said a decision could be made public before Christmas.
"The matter is before Cabinet," he said.
He said once a decision has been finalised, the public will be informed.
In November, the minister said government is considering alternatives to dealing with Gauteng e-tolls.
Mbalula said e-tolls won't be implemented in terms of the current scheme.
