On 19th May 2017, a second UCC deadline for Simcard verification expired. This was a month after an initial SEVEN day deadline had been extended by the Prime Minister following a wave of public outcry about the impracticability of the deadline.
On my Twitter account, I had demanded that UCC apologize for the manner in which they had handled the implementation of the SIM card owners’ registration compliance.
UCC needs to apologize to Ugandans and to the telecom operators for the inconvenience. #SIMRegistration

Urban TV invited me to a show, intended to have me explain some of the positions of the ICT Association on the subject, and the role the Association could play.
