Zim Laws to Curb Cyber-Crime

Zimbabwe crafts cyber laws to regulate activities on social media and to tackle cybercrimes

A government official has announced that Zimbabwe is crafting cyber laws to regulate activities on social media in order to protect its citizens and the state from cybercrimes.

Speaking to the parliamentary portfolio committee on Information Communication Technology, Cecilia Nyamutswa, Postal and Telecommunication Authority of Zimbabwe’s director for legal services, stated that that draft bills were ready and would soon be transmitted to the Attorney-General's office for legal direction and finalisation.

Nyamutswa asserts that the bills would seek to regulate what is posted on social media as well as protect customers' privacy from invasion by hackers, and warns that “…Even if we were to come up with these laws, which are a step towards the protection of citizens and our cyber space, we will need to be a step ahead because technology is changing, so we will need to be on our toes."
