Issue: MTN put up hundreds of illegal cell masts across the city in 2017, in terms of a ‘secret deal’ that they struck with the eThekwini council. The ‘secret deal’ allowed them to bypass all town planning and public participation processes. The city told residents that the masts were for CCTV cameras, and suppressed the information that they were actually cell masts. Despite the fact that MTN have admitted to wrong-doing, they have done nothing to amend their illegal actions, and a court action is pending against them. Residents in Glenwood claim that masts have severely affected their health.
