The Tanzanian government has banned the posting of ‘unclad pictures’ on social media, and it appears to many that the ban is currently aimed at the countries’ entertainment personalities.
Reports states that the Music Regulatory Board of Tanzania has summoned actress and singer, Pretty Kind, to appear before them for posting salacious snaps on Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat.
In 2017 the Tanzania Communications Regulatory Authority (TCRA) proposed the Electronic and Postal Communications (Online Content) Regulations, 2017, draft.
This meant that users would be held liable for posting content deemed “indecent, obscene, hate speech, extreme violence or material that will offend or incite others, cause annoyance, threaten, or encourage or incite crime, or lead to public disorder, per the law.”
Online radio, TV, bloggers and other digital platforms are required to register with the TCRA.
