After months of background preparation we are finally starting to see exciting progress with our Right to Repair Campaign.

A report has been compiled following research done by the Vaal Technical University on the state of the motor industry in South Africa and the consumers’ right to repair. The report has been circulated to members of the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) for comment. Further to this MIWA is in the process of engaging with OEMs one-on-one to discuss the Right to Repair Campaign. We’ll keep you posted on the outcomes of these meetings.

Bosch has also pledged its support for the Campaign with an advert soon to go to market. Take a look at the article and link below. Lastly we are excited to have secured two brilliant international speakers for an exclusive breakfast event focussed purely on the Right to Repair Campaign at Automechanika in May. We are currently approaching key stakeholders to attend the event. You can read more in our lead article.

Enjoy this action-packed edition.
