ICASA says SA Post Office must deliver parcels under 1kg, just not food

The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) has reiterated that South Africa's postal laws determined that only the South African Post Office (SAPO) may deliver packages weighing 1kg and less, although this does not include food.

Its comment came in a letter denying a BusinessDay report that it was backing the Post Office in its fight against courier companies over the rendering of these services.

The state-owned postal service has developed a reputation for late and non-delivery of packages, which has resulted in the loss of much of its mail-carrying business to private couriers.

Is icasa going to fine and police the Post Office now because the entire courier industry was built on the post office’s horrific service levels or rather lack of service in general.

So... free mini cupcake with every order.
Those hotel mints they leave on the pillow. This will be SO easy to circumvent and 2ndly and most importantly: how the fuk will they ever police this?

What a joke.
