Subscribers of Zimbabwe’s Telecel stand at a risk of having their Prepay SIM cards cut off if not registered by the end of this week.
This action was motivated by regulatory requirement that all the SIM cards are to by registered before 31st August.
“Any subscriber with an unregistered Sim card risks disconnection if he or she has not registered the line before August 31,”said Obert Mandimika,Telecel Zimbabwe communications and branding director.
Customers are adviced to either contact the company directly, or visit a local retailer alongside producing their identification cards for proof.
Speculating views of customers, regarding this move of mandating of phone registration revolves around the government wanting to control communications and some people deliberately chose to delay their compliance until after the recent elections.
