Show Notes

The prolonged deadline for the linkage came to an end on Monday, April 4, 2022, and caused disconnected subscribers to troop to the nearest National Identification Management Commission’s (NIMC) office to have their lines unbarred. However, many have been unable to link their SIMs as NIMC seems to be unable to verify NINs. According to Premium Times, over 7.5 million MTN subscribers are yet to get their NINs verified by the NIMC.

This is where we began our discussion on today's edition of the Techpoint Africa Podcast.

What's Flutterwave up to?

Internet shutdowns on the African continent have come to be a norm. So much so that in 2020, Sub-Saharan Africa lost $237.4 million to Internet censorship. In Central Africa, the Sudanese government shut down the Internet in the country on Thursday, June 30, 2022, due to protests against the military government. This is at least the fifth time this is happening since 2019, and as Emmanuel says, it is "brute hammer tactics."
