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¬ís 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.
