Kenya’s CCK Emphasizes SIM Card Registration With Arrest Threats To Telco Heads



The Communications Commissions of Kenya (CCK) together, together with the East African country’s Ministry of Information, Communication and Technology, have again repeated that there is the need for mobile service providers and their agents to comply with SIM registration regulation.

“Anyone who contravenes these regulations commits an offence and shall be liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding three hundred thousand shillings, or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding three years, or to both,”  said CCK’s Director General, Francis Wangusi.

The commission also made it known that Kenya’s process of SIM Card registration regulation has emerged after the CCK reportedly discovered that mobile operators or agents are continuing to sell SIM cards and activating these without registering subscribers.

Wangusi has issued another warning to both the public and all mobile phone subscribers that using unregistered SIM cards could result in arrest and prosecution.

Its about time we go beyond this, everyone knows the importance of registering their SIM cards and should be reminded, this cat and mouse game should stop its really hard to understand the harm in just showing up and registering unless the person has  bad intentions.
