Wednesday 27 January 2021 | 14:10 CET | News
The South African Competition Tribunal has responded with an interim order to an application from government public forum GovChat to stop its removal from WhatsApp, ITWeb reported. The order prevents the removal of GovChat from WhatsApp, and Facebook and WhatsApp have also been ordered not to undermine GovChat's relationship with its clients. In turn, GovChat has been ordered not to on-board any new clients or users to the WhatsApp business account.
