The is clear in protecting citizens against violence committed online or using Information and Communication Technologies. Did you know that the Data Protection Act [Chapter 11:22] was enacted to increase data protection in order to build confidence and trust in the secure use of information and communication technologies by data controllers, their representatives, and data subjects.

Today let us look at Section 164 of the Data Protection Act:
164 Transmission of data message inciting violence or damage to
property
"Any person who unlawfully by means of a computer or information system makes available, transmits, broadcasts or distributes a data message to any person, group of persons or to the public with intend to incite such persons to commit acts of violence against any person or persons or to cause damage to any property shall be guilty of an offence and liable to a fine not exceeding level 10 or to imprisonment for a period not exceeding five years or to both such fine and such imprisonment."

The Zimbabwe Information and Technology Empowerment Trust is committed to providing training and support on responsible use of technology. During the of Activism Against Gender Based Violence we encourage everyone to make the Internet and other digital spaces safe for everyone.

Dear Potraz...
Greetings. I'm curious to know what is it that your organisation does. Moreover, if you do what you claim to do, help us customers from the poor service delivery we are suffering at the hands of Econet and Telecel. If there is no response to this then I guess those two are getting their cues from you.
Yours sincerely
Disgruntled customer in a Free Zimbabwe.
