Tanzania's High Court has adjourned the case filed by the Tanzania Consumer Advocacy Society (TCAS) and mobile operator against the TZS 1,000 Sim tax imposed by the government to 31 October. On 09 October, the court allowed mobile operators to join TCAS in a petition lodged against the tax, the Daily News reported.
TCAS asked the court to nullify the legislation passed by the parliament requiring every mobile user to pay a TZS 1,000 monthly tax, claiming that the majority of phone users in the country cannot afford the amount. According to the petition, the legislation goes against the country's mother law and especially the right to information.
