CONSUMER PROTECTION ACT – INDEMNITY CLAUSE “As supplier of the goods/services, you, the Advertiser warrant that you are familiar with and will comply with the provisions of the consumer Protection Act, Act 68 of 2008 (‘CPA’) in all transactions between us.” Africa alive and kicking Despite often challenging economies, high illiteracy levels, civil unrest and even war, Africa has a thriving media environment. Research shows that about 67% of Africa’s population (about 1,13 billion) has mobile phones. And, about 26.5% of the population is on the internet. Sadly however, freedom of the press and censorship are issues in many African countries – including South Africa. At all costs, this must be protected. Yet, from the in-depth reports, a picture emerges of a continent willing itself forward, doggedly determined. Inside this annual, the first of its kind, you’ll find information, growth opportunities, and relevant statistics.
