LAW: Consumer Protection Act ¬Ė Court Gives Minister Until 27 Jan

 





Recent Gauteng Business News

The Minister of Trade and Industry, Dr Rob Davies, was ordered today by Judge Mavundla in the North Gauteng High Court to provide AfriForum with all records of the proceedings which led to his decision to have certain municipalities exempted from the Consumer Protection Act, by no later than 27 January.

Consumer Protection Act Court Application


This comes after AfriForum last year brought a court application against a notice which exempted so-called low- and medium-capacity municipalities from the Consumer Protection Act indefinitely.

A report released by the National Treasury last week, revealed once again that more than 40% of the country’s 283 municipalities are dysfunctional. In a further development, 10 000 city council members of the ANC demanded that their property be insured against damage caused during service delivery protests.

Consumer Protection Act for Municipalities


AfriForum¬ís legal representative, Willie Spies, said the fact that the government shields municipalities against the country¬ís laws causes communities to rise up. ¬ďAfriForum wants municipalities to be subjected to the strict requirements of the Consumer Protection Act just like other businesses,¬Ē he added.
