Zimbabwe ISP’s ordered to shutdown internet again
Posted By friends of Techzim as our local team is presently disconnected…
It seems that the Government of Zimbabwe has issued yet another directive to ISPs forcing them to shutdown the internet again at approximately midnight last night. We can only assume that the enterprising Zimbabweans out there were finding bypasses to the continuous attempts to block access to social media. Our sources within various ISPs were saying that they were receiving requests to block new services or apps on a nearly hourly basis at one point yesterday.
We still don’t understand why the Government of Zimbabwe continues to persist in this attempt to stifle free communication and when they will realise that such attempts are ultimately fruitless. The cost to the Zimbabwe economy has to be disastrous and yet the Government still peddles the Zimbabwe is open for business mantra.
