Judgment has been reserved in the High Court in Cape Town in an application by the South African National Editors' Forum (SANEF) about the cellphone jamming in the National Assembly during this year’s State-of-the-Nation address.
At the core of SANEF's application is the request for the court to order Parliament to allow broadcasters to take their cameras inside the chamber during sessions and not to depend on the Parliamentary feed.
There was an outcry from the media and opposition parties when there was no cellphone signal and internet connection in most parts of the Parliament precinct. President Jacob Zuma's address was delayed until the signal was unscrambled.
