tanzania-law-for-online-content-threatens-free-speech

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 licence and pay a fee of $930 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.
