By Robert Segawa
Forum for Democratic change party agrees with sim card registration but has urged the government to give citizens more time to register before switching off their phones .
The party spokesperson Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda said that Parliament must not keep quiet when people’s freedom is being suppressed by individuals instead must do anything possible to ensure that those whose sims cards were blocked are unblocked.
Ssemujju highlighted  that many people use phones to get food and other necessities.
Last week government in its effort to tighten security in the country they blocked all sim cards which were not registered. The move has however seen registered and verified numbers switched off.
