The notice says the regulator has noticed the increasing rate of cyber crime in the country, and more of it is committed through users of cyber cafes making it harder for the regulator to carry out investigations.

Cyber café operators will therefore have to start register users full names, physical addresses,  telephone numbers, take their passport photos and telephone numbers.
