Cameroon Suspends 33 Percent Tax On Imported Phones

 The Cameroon government has finally signed a communique to halt the 33 percent tax levied on all imported phones and tablets in Cameroon.

Cameroon Suspends 33 Percent Tax Imposed On Imported Phones

This decision was signed by Cameroon's Minister of State, Secretary-General at the Presidency, Ferdinand Ngoh Ngoh, on the 19th of October 2020.

This comes after the declaration levying the heavy 33 percent tax on imported phones was met by widespread backlash from Cameroonian citizens at home and abroad. Prominent tech figure Rebecca Enonchong was one of the first to denounce the move, citing it as a move met with slowing the rise of technology.

Moreover, some citizens proceeded to look for ways to evade the tax.

In this communique, Ferdinand Ngoh Ngoh reiterates that the ministry of Communication should put other appropriate measures to deduct taxes for imported phones and taxes.

This is a developing story.
