The Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications has instituted a Reward Package for persons that provide information leading to the arrest of miscreants involved in the theft of Telecommunication Equipment at cell sites.

Chief Executive Officer of the Chamber, Dr. Kenneth Ashigbey, who announced this said such whistle-blowers would receive an additional reward if culprits are successfully prosecuted.

He said, the problem if not addressed, could have serious implications on National Security, businesses as well as the country’s revenue generation.

Dr. Ashigbey was addressing a news conference in Kumasi on the increasing theft of Telecommunication Equipment and its impact on the industry.

He said the telecommunication companies used to experience fiber cuts and theft of fuel and batteries at cell sites, but are now being confronted with the theft of Active and Passive Equipment.

He said although the Chamber has been able to target where the fuel and batteries are sold, tracking the equipment remains a challenge.

Dr. Ashibgey said since August 2020, 115 theft cases on active equipment have been recorded, per data from the three major Telecommunication Companies. This, he lamented, has disrupted service delivery.
