Like most African countries, Zimbabwe still relies on a self-declaratory system to oversee the telecoms sector. However, this leaves loopholes – encouraging scams and fraudulent activities and robbing the country of a vital revenue stream. However, without the correct tools Zimbabwean authorities do not have sufficient visibility of the sector. Which means it is unable to measure the exact volume of telecom transactions that are subject to taxes and regulatory fees. When it comes to international calls, for example, Zimbabwe faces a double pitfall: a lack of visibility over the real volumes of calls exchanged between local operators and international carriers and the current licensing regime.
