In a statement responding to media reports about Right2Know’s intention to march on the offices of the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA), the regulator said Right2Know would unfortunately not be allowed into ICASA’s premises.
“Although ICASA respects the right to march by any organisation against any matter, it is dismayed by the fact that Right2Know did not inform ICASA of its intended march to its offices except through the media,” ICASA said.
“Unfortunately, ICASA Offices are closed on weekends and they will not be allowed into the premises when there is no one to attend to their concerns.”
In addition to talking up its Cost to Communicate programme, ICASA also encouraged all interested stakeholders to be part of their regulatory process by making formal submissions.
“No other submission will be considered outside of the requisite process,” ICASA said.
