Sample News Script:
In light of the motion passed by Parliament to extend the sim card registration by not more than a year, I speak to an official of the National Identification and Registration Authority on the flaws in the registration process for National IDs and the way forward for the unregistered citizens, that will be in news-night, I’m (Your full name) welcome to NTV TONIGHT, here is a look at the headlines.
GOOD EVENING ONCE AGAIN, I AM (Your full name)
Parliament has passed a motion seeking to have the Uganda Communications Commission extend the deadline for Sim Card registration for not more than one year. Parliament also directed minister of ICT and Communication to present a status report on the registration and validation of sim cards while the minister of security was tasked to issue specific regulations for the exercise. As Herbert Zziwa reports, ICT minister Frank Tumwebaze insists that while government respects the parliamentary resolution, the sim card registration deadline of Friday will remain.
With just a day left to the deadline for the switch off of unverified sim cards, hundreds of desperate people formed long lines to beat the deadline to have their phone lines registered. Many of the people who have not yet yet got their national IDs are spending nights at the ID registration centres hoping to be first in line in the morning. Telecom sector regulator, the Uganda Communications Commission is expected to switch off unverified sim cards on Friday.
Now, if the directive to switch off unregistered sim cards by the Uganda Communications Commission is effected, 3,465,940 subscribers will be affected.
This according to the final figures submitted to the telecommunications regulator at close of business today. At least 19 million subscribers had submitted their details while only 15.7 million had been verified andauthenticated. The National Identification Registration Authority has rejected over 1.2 million subscribers over faulty data. Information Technology and Communications Minister, Frank Tumwebaze, maintains that despite Parliament’s passing of a motion to extend sim card registration, the deadline stands.
