Cell Phone Signal Jamming - Is It Legal?
16 Feb 15
Signal Blocking Cell Phone

In short the answer is "no”. However there are certain special instances where cell phone signals are legally allowed to be jammed. 

Icasa, in response to Thursdays State of the Nation address by President Jacob Zuma’s, said in 2012 that the use of wireless signal jammers in South Africa was illegal. 

In fact there are certain exceptions, none of which apply to what happened on Thursday night.

  • National Security Cluster Departments are allowed to make use of signal jammers.
  • State security functions (under the National Security Cluster Departments).
