The Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) has started switching off unregistered phone users today 5th August 2013.

Sim-card registration that started last year is aimed at reducing high crime levels in the country.
The UCC public relations officer, Fred Otunnu said the switch off will last 12 hours before another group of unregistered sim-cards will also be switched off.

Government’s plans to have all mobile phone subscribers registered by early this year failed since many had not registered their sim-cards.

This forced UCC to extend the registration and verification deadline to August 31st.
