The Communications Regulatory Authority of Namibia has lost at least N$ 158 million through regulatory levies it could not collect since 2018, its 2020 annual report shows. In response to the findings of the report which covers the 2019/20 financial year, on Wednesday CRAN Chief Executive Officer, Emilia Nghikembua told the Namibia Press Agency that the situation has placed CRAN in a compromised position. “CRAN’s main source of revenue is the collection of regulatory levies under the Communications Amendment Act. The legal challenge in respect of the Act, however, places a limitation on CRAN’s ability to collect revenue to defray the cost of regulation,” she said.
