Zambia is now the latest African country that is is about to shutdown the use of social media by their citizens .

According to an information from the Monitor, Zambia’s Communication Minister, Brian Mushimba, told parliament that some Zambians were using social media to send pornographic images, spread hate speech and to commit identity theft.

"PRIOR TO THE PROLIFERATION OF SOCIAL MEDIA, PEOPLE IN ZAMBIA BEHAVED AND COMMUNICATED WITHIN ACCEPTABLE AND EXPECTED CULTURAL BOUNDARIES,” HE SAID.
“INCIDENTS OF IMPERSONATIONS, PEOPLE BEING INSULTED, ABUSED, FALSELY ACCUSED OR DEFRAUDED ON SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS HAVE REACHED AN ALARMING STATE", Zambia’s Communication Minister Said.

He further said that these new laws that are yet to be drafted will introduce penalties for those abusing social media although he didn’t clarify on how the laws would be enforced.

Another report from Lusaka Times , stated that Zambia will not introduce tax on social media, as what we have seen in Uganda. The minister said they will not copy Uganda but they will work in conjunction with the Zambia Information and Communication Authority (ZICTA) and will continue sensitizing the productive usage of the platform.
