PREFERMENT BY MALAWI COMMUNICATIONS REGULATORY AUTHORITY (macra)
A FOUL STINK AT MACRA
Only three days after I posted the main item below a clear indication of what I had been highlighting has been given by MACRA's handling of the latest licence issued to Celcom (100% owned by Mulli Brothers).
The new 'home-boy' business has been given special licence terms that put them in a more favoured position than the existing telecomms operators. According to a report in yesterday's Sunday Times, the four existing licence holders have questioned MACRA's actions and are demanding that they be given similar terms and conditions.
Should the new company go ahead and operate under such favoured conditions I will campaign for a boycott of their services.
Government hides the truth
If you go to one demonstration and then go home, that's something, but the people in power can live with that. What they can't live with is sustained pressure that keeps building, organisations that keep doing things, people that keep learning lessons from the last time and doing it better the next time.
Power is a drug on which the politicians are hooked. They buy it from the voters, using the voters' own money.
