MTN South Africa has been sued by an organisation calling itself the Durban Anti-Cell Mast Alliance (Dacma), seeking to stop the mobile company from rolling out new towers in the coastal city, TechCentral reported. Dacma which was founded in 2017 to protest against what it called the "illegal" deployment of masts in Durban. It said that it lodged papers with the high court in Durban asking for a review of a "secret deal" that it claims MTN concluded with the eThekwini municipality in April 2016.
