The tower, which was disguised as a chimney attached to Tony Knott-Craig’s house, was not given municipal approval, and drew suspicion from neighbours.
According to the report, it was discovered that Knott-Craig’s in-development braai area actually housed high-tech equipment and air-conditioners, all to service the tower.
Cell C told MyBroadband that the cellular equipment at the house was installed for testing purposes. “The site was not commercially active,” Cell C said.
Cell C said that it halted the approval process as a decision was made to move the site to a more suitable location.
