Cameroon: 3 mobile telecom operators come under attack from the anti corruption commission

The National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) has revealed that three mobile telecom operators have defrauded the state of over 176 billion FCFA. The commission that met on Tuesday, January 19, 2016, with the various stakeholders in the telecommunications sector in Cameroon named the three mobile operators as Orange, MTN Cameroon and Camtel. The anti corruption body also made some recommendations to clean up the sector. 

According to the report presented by the President of the NACC, Rev. Dr. Dieudonné Massi, the three telecom companies successfully duped the state due to irregularities in the mobile telecom service, tax evasion and unpaid royalties. The report of the Committee also denounced the deliberate silence of the Telecommunications Regulatory Agency (ART).

The anti corruption leaders noted that Cameroon Viettel, the newest mobile operator in Cameroon has simultaneously and illegally been operating under the name Nexttel, without any amendment to the concession agreement that binds it to the State of Cameroon.
