The Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe (Potraz) said it is advocating stiffer penalties for vandals, NewsDay reported.

Potraz consumer affairs manager Phibion Chaibva said the regulator will step up efforts to curb acts of vandalism on network infrastructure. Chaibva said operators are all suffering theft and vandalism at their base stations, resulting in disruption of the network.

The official said Potraz is working on various security mechanisms. Potraz is holding roadshows to educate consumers on their rights and obligations, as well as on the economic and social impacts of vandalism of ICT equipment.
