๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ฟ Tanzania law for online content 'threatens free speech' | Al Jazeera English

Tanzania’s government has approved a new law that regulates content online. Bloggers, social media influencers and online platforms will now have to apply for a license and pay a fee of 930 US dollars if they want to keep their sites up.

The 'Electronic and Postal Communications Regulation 2018’ gives the government the right to revoke permit if a site publishes content “that leads to public disorder” and “threatens national security”.

Rights groups are concerned that this could affect freedom of expression in the country.
