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.
