Here is the new deadline to update your Sim Card details..

The Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) has expanded the cross country SIM card registration up to October 15 this year.

This comes as a huge reprive to many Kenyans who had not updated their Sim card details by yesterday midnight (April 14th), and we're also surprised to wake up to the fact that their lines we're still on by today morning. 

CA's Director-General Ezra Chiloba says the move will permit Kenyans more opportunity to update their details as many had said they didn't get enough time to update their details as had been required of them.

This also comes as Safaricom PLC seems to have softened their stand on Sim registration procedures and now allows their Subscribers to update their details online as opposed to their earlier directive where subscribers we're required to present themselves individually to a Safaricom shop or agent near them in order to update their details.

On their part Airtel Kenya and Telkom Kenya allowed their Subscribers to update their details on line through a link provided to them. The only action required from Sim card owners we're to upload a front and back pictures of their ID'S.

CA however still maintains their earlier stand that those who will not have updated their details by October 15th 2022 will be exposed to weighty punishments of either a year in prison or a Sh300,000 fine or both.

I fully conquer with the Communications Authority of Kenya that all Sim card owners should update their Sim details, as this will greatly lower instances of fraud done by croocks who lure subscribers to stealing money from them.
