- Gambia’s Public Utility Regulatory Authority (PURA) has confirmed that it will block all unregistered mobile SIM cards which remain at the 15 June deadline which it has set for the country’s mandatory user registration scheme. Director general of PURA, Abdoulie Jobe, explained that unregistered users will at that date be unable to use voice services, although they will continue to be able to send and receive text messages, until an unspecified date when their account will be deactivated.
