Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe addresses the ZANU-PF party’s top decision making body, the Politburo, in the capital Harare, February 10, 2016. Mugabe, the only leader that Zimbabwe has ever known, turns 92 this month amid escalating tensions within his ruling ZANU-PF party over who will eventually succeed him. Zimbabwean President, Robert Mugabe, has created a ministry to punish “rats” who make use of the cyberspace to attack his government. Appointed as head of this new Cyber Security, Threat Detection, and Mitigation ministry is Patrick Chinamasa who is a former Finance minister. Zimbabweans have joked about the development, claiming Chinamasa’s appointment makes him the “minister of WhatsApp and Facebook”.
However, Chinamasa’s first job, it seems, is to get rid of, or regulate the use of Whatsapp and Facebook, raising serious concerns over freedom of expression, access to information and a clampdown on social media messaging.
Zimbabwe actually did, in fact, issue new rules on using WhatsApp, in the country. The rules order groups to be registered and for the administrator of the group to have government level clearance.
