PRETORIA – The smart meter case against the City of Tshwane will be back in the North Gauteng High Court this morning.
Civil rights group AfriForum wants the court to stop the municipality from handing over the smart electricity meter contract to a new service provider.
It also wants to prevent the city from paying out Peu Capital, which was initially awarded the contact.
This could result in the municipality losing close to half a billion rand.
Tshwane still owes Peu capital R1-billion for the 13,000 meters it had installed before the agreement was terminated.
The deal fell apart after AfriForum launched a court application to declare it invalid.
