Namibia undertakes review of communications law

11 Oct 2019

Mbeuta Ua-Ndjarakana, executive director of the Ministry of Information and Communications Technology, has revealed the government has initiated a review of the country’s communications laws and ICT policies in order to address current deficiencies and align legislation with emerging trends in the sector, reports News Ghana. ‘The Communications Act No. 8 of 2009 and ICT policies have over time become outdated and obsolete. As a result most ICT sub-sectors are experiencing legal hitches in implementing and enforcing some provisions in the Act or provisions in their respective legal instruments because the Act is not aligned with certain provisions in the sub-sector policies, regulations, and guidelines,’ he said.
