The National Communication Council will henceforth take a tougher stance against television distribution enterprises which flout laws governing the sector, the vice-president of the Council, Mr. Peter Essoka, has said.

He made the announcement recently during meetings with promoters of the industry in the West, North West and Littoral regions.

In view of implementing the new Law No 2015/007 of 20 April 2015 governing audiovisual activities in Cameroon, the Council has set out to inspect the legal statuses of these enterprises, Mr. Essoka said at the first of these meetings in Bafoussam on September 24.

He reechoed the same message in Bamenda on September 25 and Douala on September 30.

Section 39(1) of the new law stipulates that the National Communication Council is charged with issuing approvals to enterprises that market content provided by editors or producers (television distribution) amongst others.

As a result, operators in the sector who have since been going about their activities under what has been labeled ‘administrative tolerance’, will have to make their legal statuses up to date, explained Professor Jean Tobie Hond, Secretary General of the NCC.

Mr. Essoka said it was unfortunate that even under the banner of ‘administrative tolerance’, some of the enterprises have failed to understand that they have a stake in the moral armament of society. He said they must cease acting like unlicensed drivers on the highway who put lives at risk.

In the exchanges that ensued, industry leaders in the television distribution sector in the West, North West and Littoral regions pledged to follow regulations governing the sector to the letter, help promote local media and culture.
