Judgment in fibre optic cable case held

2014-03-28 00:00

A JUDGE has reserved judgment in a case where Msunduzi Municipality is seeking an interdict to stop Dark Fibre Africa from continuing to install optic fibre cables in the city without its permission.

The municipality submits that the conduct by Dark Fibre Africa causes harm to the public, is unconstitutional and could cause damage in future. The stance by Dark Fibre Africa is that it has an “absolute right” in terms of the Electronic Communications Act of 2005 to continue with its construction activities on public and private land, without municipal permission.
