News24 | Emfuleni municipality ordered to produce ‘missing’ documents in excessive pricing complaint

The Competition Tribunal has ordered the Emfuleni Local Municipality to produce documents to assist steel producer Cape Gate in its excessive pricing complaint.

About eight years ago, the municipality allegedly excessively charged the steel producer for the electricity supplied in contravention of the Competition Act, for which Cape Gate laid a complaint.

The municipality, based in the Vanderbijlpark area of Gauteng, denies the charges.
