Zimbabwe’s Minister of ICT, Supa Mandiwanzira
In the past month, there has been a lot of debate around the likelihood of social media regulation in Zimbabwe.
This has been fueled by developments like the statement released by the telecoms regulator, POTRAZ, as well the focus on online activist efforts like the #ThisFlag campaign led by a Zimbabwean pastor, Evan Mawarire.
In a recent interview on local radio station Star FM, Supa Mandiwanzira, Zimbabwe’s minister of ICT spoke about how there wouldn’t be any social media regulation unless the need arose – referencing cases of social media abuse that included revenge porn and the encouragement of civil unrest.
He also took the opportunity to talk about allegations of corruption levelled against him as well as his encounter with Evan Mawarire.
