Kenya’s Communications Authority to Take Tough Measures on Unregistered SIM cards

According to reports from Standard Newspaper, Kenya’s Communications Authority (CA) is to implement tough measures governing the use of mobile phones in the country ahead of the 2017 general elections.

The CA says the use of an unregistered SIM card carries a fine of $100 or six months in jail.

Other offenses attracting similar penalty include buying sim cards from hawkers and failure to report a lost sim card to a police station.

The new regulation will also apply to people allowing strangers to use their sim cards, the report says.
