[PC Tech Magazine] The Information Communications Technology Association of Uganda (ICTAU) has raised concern over the seven day ultimatum issued over verification of simcard registration particulars by the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC).

The Commission on Tuesday directed telecom operators to deactivate all simcards whose registration particulars will not be updated to match with the National ID database within 7 days – a period that expires April 20th, 2017.

In an April 13th letter to the UCC Executive Director, Eng. Godfrey Mutabazi, ICTAU Chairman Board of Directors Albert Mucunguzi said the association was “deeply concerned” that the directive could bear severe consequences for Uganda and the economy.
