Multichoice Ghana, the Pay-TV operator has warned the government about illegal import of DStv decoders in the country by smugglers. The General Manager of Multichoice reminded the population that only the National Communications Authority (NCA) is the only body that can accept the importation.
“This practice is dangerous and injurious to the economy of Ghana” said Cecil Sunkwa-Mills and called on the Ghana Police, Customs Excise and Prevention Service and other security agencies to assist in abating this illegal activity to protect the viability of the Ghanaian economy.
The main problems with this commerce is that people can ignore the fact that they were sold illegal devices. This will then override Ghana taxes, VAT and CST. Thus, creating a hole in the nation budget no estimation have been done on how much that cost the state as well as the company.
