Mugabe Appoints Minister For “whatsapp And Facebook” In Zimbabwe by Factfinder1(m): 8:48am On Oct 21, 2017
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.

It can be argued that Mugabe issued these new rules in order to tone down the rate of inflation in the country via rumors but one can’t but wonder if it isn’t to maintain Mugabe’s 37-year reign, so he could clinch another victory in 2018 presidential elections.

In view of the recent human manufactured propaganda one reads on Whatsapp,facebook and social media(in general) daily,this "might" actually worth commendation if given a thorough review and re-thought.

Only in Africa

Before you criticise him remember our oga here wanted to pass social media control laws that may have led to a formation of intelligence crack team to arrest and prosecute you when you criticise him but for the outright rejection of that move by Nigerians.

And why does it have to be an Igbo man, Patrick Chinasa?

So Mugabe couldn't think of something more recognisable to compensate this man with?
