All Cellphone and Tablet owners must buy a ZBC radio license #thisflag. The court ruled that citizens were not being asked to pay for the services provided for by Zbc but the legislature came up with the law compelling all citizens possessing gadgets capable of receiving radio and television signals, to pay tax for possessing such gadgets.
This includes mobile phones and tablets that have an FM radio application. The judgement was delivered in a matter involving Bernard Wekare and Musangano Lodge who were both challenging the compulsory payment of Zbc licences arguing it was in violation of the country’s Constitution since citizens were being forced to pay for services they did not want to watch or listen to.
