Lesotho revokes Vodacom’s operating licence


The Lesotho Communications Authority (LCA) has revoked the unified licence of Vodacom Lesotho, the organisation announced in a notice issued on 8 October 2020.

It said this action was taken because Vodacom failed to pay a fine of the equivalent of R134 million for contravening local legislation and the conditions of its operating licence in the region.


“Notice is hereby given of the revocation of the Unified License of Vodacom Lesotho (Pty) Ltd in accordance with section 47(1)(e) of the Communications Act, 2012 read with conditions 7(c) and 8 of the terms of License for failure to comply with the directive to pay a penalty of M40,200,000 by 7 October 2020,” the LCA stated.

The referenced legislation allows the LCA to, among other options, modify, suspend, or revoke a licensee’s licence if they are found to have contravened the Communications Act or any regulation, rule, code, or directive issued by the LCA.
