Therefore, promises of creating smart cities should be carefully examined, given the realities of SA’s cities and municipalities. This is one of the key finding of a smart cities report compiled by the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), titled “Inclusive smart cities appropriate to the South African context – challenges and opportunities”.
