Zimbabwe ISP’s ordered to shutdown internet again

Posted By friends of Techzim as our local team is presently disconnected…

It seems that the Government of Zimbabwe has issued yet another directive to ISPs forcing them to shutdown the internet again at approximately midnight last night. We can only assume that the enterprising Zimbabweans out there were finding bypasses to the continuous attempts to block access to social media. Our sources within various ISPs were saying that they were receiving requests to block new services or apps on a nearly hourly basis at one point yesterday.

We still don’t understand why the Government of Zimbabwe continues to persist in this attempt to stifle free communication and when they will realise that such attempts are ultimately fruitless. The cost to the Zimbabwe economy has to be disastrous and yet the Government still peddles the Zimbabwe is open for business mantra.

  1. Just this sums it up all – “receiving requests to block new services or apps on a nearly hourly basis at one point yesterday” this means they have operatives actively monitoring people’s posts on social media helping each other try bypass the block. These resources would be better used focused on economy. Our priorities are so misplaced.

  2. There is no ‘Open for business’ like this, This Gvnt is short of ideas now, ndiko kupererwa manji uku!!!
