negotiated between licensee and landowner...happens all the time on commercial premises or rooftop high sites and occasionally on private land...ICASA is required to develop guidelines on what will be fair compensation, which will be open for public comment
It's this part I don't trust.

As if landowners and parties concerned are unable to come to an agreement. The old rules were pretty simple.
What guidelines are required? And why ICASA? Are they the experts in land evaluations? No
Are they all of a sudden experts in infrastructure build? No.
Their primary task is spectrum management.

The actual draft says nothing about towers. Mybb is just using a hypothetical extreme scenario which angers readers into clicking the link.

The government paper is most likely aimed at letting any telecom company, including cell phone companies, to install things like fibre and backbone infrastructure under your land where it would otherwise be difficult or expensive to go around.

Edit,

Think about land like farms.

Edit Edit,

****it let's stick a 200m high tower on top of parliament.
You would have to pull all the heads out of their asses first.
