Telecommunications sector urges Godongwana to address infrastructure damage

# The telecommunications sector urges Finance minister Enoch Godongwana to address  infrastructure damage. They propose diesel rebates to alleviate the operational costs incurred from using generators for backup power, especially in regions with unstable grids. This measure aims to ensure service reliability, while cost savings can be redirected to expand networks and adopt sustainable energy solutions. Telecommunication companies spent over 1.1-billion-rand on diesel for critical infrastructure amid load-shedding last year.
