“There appears to be no legitimate radio communications use for cellular jamming devices,” the gazette stated. “Icasa has therefore decided that use of jamming devices will not be authorised”
Does this include government?

Yes.

Signal jamming is illegal in this country, no ifs ands or buts.
... apart from the guavament of course. They are apparently above the law.

The president had over 900 counts of corruption and fraud against him, which were conveniently overturned.
His crony Shabir Sheik got medical parole, after being convicted of fraud and corruption.
His other buddy Jackie Selebi, who was also convicted or fraud, corruption and racketeering charges, was also given parole.

1. Selebi was a friend of Mbeki, not Zuma.
2. Selebi was charged when there was a political battle between Mbeki and Zuma camps.
3. Selebi is now painted as a struggle hero (had always clean financial audits) and Zuma as a persistent fraudster.
4. It seems this battle is not over...

I know a CEO who turns it on during meetings so people dont fiddle with their phone every 2 min.
He is breaking the law....

Plus not having cell signal doesn't stop me from playing Angry Birds if someone is boring and talking shyte.

If that ceo has to do that instead of asking his employees to kindly refrain from using their phones during the meeting then he either is a dick or his employees have no respect for him.

South Africa’s telecommunications regulator, the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa, has previously said that using jammers is illegal
Except ANC is above all laws

Actually, there are cases where it's legal and certain bodies that may use them. In South Africa. By law. ��
Well it seems the list of if ands or buts just gets bigger all the time....

But according to ICASA's initial statement they were illegal though.

IIRC, It includes the Police, Department of Defense and Depart of National Security.

They still need to get permission from ICASA though.
