Popular Tanzania Blogging Site Shuts Down Due To Tough New Rules by Chubhie: 4:49pm On Jun 11, 2018
A popular Tanzanian blogging site, Jamii Forums, has shut down following government enforcement of harsh new online content regulations.

The regulator, Tanzania Communication Regulatory Authority (TCRA), has disallowed publishing of online content without the necessary licences effective Monday June 11.
Bloggers have until June 15 to acquire licences, TCRA has said.

The rules require bloggers and online TV and radio to register their platforms, obtain a tax clearance certificate, and pay licence fees of up to $900.

They are also required to reveal details of their shareholders, citizenship of owners and share capital.

Digital activists and human rights watchdogs’ quest to block the implementation of the regulations fell through two weeks ago after they lost a court case challenging the government on what they termed as a crackdown on free speech.

Most bloggers in Tanzania are individuals without registered companies, making it difficult for them to meet the new regulations.

APC will implement this when they win the 2019. Nigerians read my lips. Buhari will take away your right to free speech after 2019 if he wins. The level of tyranny in 2019 will be unprecedented as he will not need you for votes again.

Write it down.
