South Africans push back against 5G towers in their backyards

JOHANNESBURG, July 31 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Tens of thousands of South Africans have written complaints to the government over a new policy that would let mobile networks build cellphone infrastructure like 5G towers on private land, which they say could devalue their property.

Since communications minister Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams gazetted the policy last week, dissent has poured in through the website Dear South Africa, which collects online submissions to challenge or co-form policies before they become law. [Thomson Reuters – Kim Harrisberg].
