President Salva Kiir has replaced the director-general of the National Communications Authority.

Though the first DG, was appointed in July 2014, in practical terms, NCA was the establishment in June 2015 when the Board of Directors had its first inaugural meeting.

In a presidential decree read on state television — SSBC Friday evening, President Kiir appointed Engineer Napoleon Adok as the Director-General with immediate effect.

According to the NCA website, the agency has enacted ten regulations (bylaws) for the different aspects of the ICT sector, managing the country spectrum resources, numbering plan, approving tariffs, tackling interconnection issues, and disputes, licensing ICT service providers and approving equipment types and standards.

The Agency also mentioned as seen by NCMP, that through the the it’s Strategic Plan, NCA seeks to align itself with South Sudan Vision 2040, the Constitution of South Sudan/Agreement on Resolution of Conflict in South Sudan (ARCISS), and the Communication Sector Policy 2012, each of which places major responsibilities and expectations on NCA.
