This has led to several calls on the government and the ministry to extend the exercise to September 30.

“It will be reviewed at the end of this month [July] and any SIM that has not been fully registered by the end of August will be barred from certain services including voice and data. It will also be more expensive to use unregistered SIMs,” she added.

The full range of punitive measures, the Minister noted will be announced at another press briefing which will be held in September this year.
