“Illegal” Cell C tower hidden in chimney causes a stir

Cell C CEO Alan Knott-Craig‘s brother has upset neighbours by installing and disguising an illegally placed cellphone tower at his home in Graaf-Reinet, according to the Sunday Times.

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.
