There is already, under freedom of information act, and the Constitution and other laws like crimwnil law and tort, and even the recent hate speech act.Tort made provision for it under libel as a civil remedy... while crimnwl law criminalises it under defamation, no need to make a special law, otherewse it will be duplicity of laws which this country is already suffering from.
Agreed , but there is need to be a social media that puts a special onus on social responsibility of TREBLE financial damages on the part of the Newspaper that happens in the UK and the US. Nigeria has very weak defamation laws that is why there is a glaring lack of investigative journalism.
In the US , Fox News will pay a heavy financial price for its irresponsibility as well as quite few individuals who constantly peddled false news .

And you're telling me all this why? Do you see a single mention of Nigeria in what I posted?
What does South Africa need good luck for? Paramount Group, a private company bought the helicopters for its clients and for its helicopter flight training academy.
I wasn't telling you anything , if you read my comments , one more time ,I commended South Africa for acquiring the HELIOS , I tried to kill two birds with one stone , there were two different comments where it was stated that Nigeria did not buy or sought a donation for these helicopters , that was what I was responding to.
Not everything is a fight between S'Africa and Nigeria , I want S'AFRICA to kick ass in Mozambique .

MOGADISHU, Somalia - The Somali National Army (SNA) said Monday its elite forces (Danab) killed 25 al-Shabab militants and injured several others during an operation at Gambole about 48 km to Jowhar town, the administrative capital of Hirshabelle State.
Hassan Mohamed Osman, acting commander of Danab said the troops will intensify sting operations in the area to flush out the extremists blamed for insecurity in the region.
Osman told SNA Radio that the forces carried out the operation after getting intelligence reports about the presence of the militants in the Gambole area who were planning to carry out terror activities in the area.
Al-Shabab militants did not comment on the latest military onslaught on its fighters made by the Somali commandos so far, but the operation comes as allied forces have vowed to carry out joint security patrols ahead of the holy month of Ramadan which begins on Tuesday.https://www.garoweonline.com/en/news/somalia/at-least-25-killed-militants-in-anti-al-shabaab-operation-in-somalia

Then respond directly to the people who made those comments.
Again, South Africa does not need commendation for anything, as SA has not acquired the choppers. A private company did.

The BDF's continuing modernisation is impressive. Tanks and helicopters are next.
Rumour has it the fighter jet acquisition will also be restarted, this time with a competition between SAAB Gripen C vs KAI F-50.

Looking at initial purchase and operating cost, I'm more inclined to think the FA-50 would be their most preferred choice.

Apparently Russian has given passports to 400,000 people in the Eastern part of Ukraine.

Russia would decimate them if the launch a full scale operation.

Russia would also not allow Ukraine join NATO.

I don't think It would be that easy for Russia to sweep easily Ukraine aside. Yeah, Ukraine would be defeated in a conflict with Russia but it won't be an easy defeat and Russia would have a lot to lose in such a conflict. Remember if the Ukrainian army isn't that of 2014 and if Russia had not intervened, Ukraine would have crushed those separatists by now.

which ukraine , that country is a shadow of it's self.
Relying on the west for hands out,or it's btr 60,T-64s and Su-27s .
The ukrainian military is worst than it's 2014 form.

Well heard they bought turkish Tb2 drones, would love to see how they fair again a superior force.

It depends. Not much difference in price, so geopolitics will come into consideration. Sweden or South Korea? Botswana has a well developed realist foreign policy. Their posture is a flexible balancing act amongst national interest, vis-a-vis SADC regionally, AU continentally, the greater outside world generally.

None of that is sequential, meaning they are only the 2nd southern African country after SA who can chart an independent foreign policy outlook.

And yes, I know Botswana's posture is "western", but they trade extensively with the "east".

The ideal position for African countries- a non-aligned posture that chooses the best of what's available out there without taking sides.

Which ukraine are you talking about. The one in 2021 or 2014. Most takes of the ukrainian army uses oplot-m tanks, where did the nigerian army bought the btr-4 from? Are you serious. The readiness of the ukrainian army presently is far better than what it was in 2021.
As for the ukrainian airforce, most of their aircraft are maintained and upgraded by the ukrainian defense industry.
And please also know the mass of russian army still use the t-72mb3 which is an upgrade from the basic t-72. Only elite units in the russian armed forces use the t-90 and not even the modernized t-90ms which india is buying. Yeah Russia is a force to reckon with but don't underestimate the ukrainians.

Culturally and linguistically East Ukraine is considered Russian if you grew up in Eastern Ukraine in the 50s,60s and 70s You spoke Russian as a second language , if you were academically gifted you were likely to go to Top Russian University. My Ex Boss was born in the UKRAINE , however he would tell you he is Russian, What's the difference he would say.
It would be a horrible mistake for Ukraine to ATTEMPT) to join NATO , in the belief that Russia would not invade Ukraine ( They would) and the US WILL NOT INTERVENE on a MILITARY level.
Two years ago PUTIN re- built A MASSIVE bridge in record time linking Russia directly with Ukraine , the Black Sea is patrolled and owned and has been rechristened the Russian Navy.
Since last month IVAN has sent a fully supported kitted out division to its border with UKRAINE " for training purposes".
Next Month Biden and Putin will meet ( my prediction part 1)
My prediction part 2):
Ukraine will not join NATO because the US will advise them it is not a good idea.
My prediction part 3):
With half of the Country on their side it would take IVAN will take a week to overrun UKRAINE ( West Ukraine), but Russia will NOT invade UKRAINE .

If I may ask did the algerians not reject mig-29 supplied by russia some years back. The btr-4 rejected by iraq does not make it a bad weapon. The indonesian army is using the btr-4. The thai army is using the oplot-m tanks. The only issue they had was ukraine not being able to respect the delivery schedule which was agreed on.
I don't deny russia would defeat ukraine in an all out war but don't joke when someone is fighting for his country. U might be suprise.
