Africa has the largest growth of Internet distribution in the world but some governments still have a long way to go in respecting access to the Internet as a democratic right. This panel will discuss how Governments in Uganda, Kenya and Zimbabwe Regulate Online Communication and expose the nature and implications of the legal and sometimes illegal ways governments use to regulate social media and the strategies developed by Internet activists to react to them.

Speaker: Christian Echle, Ruth Aine Tindyebwa, Daniel Ominde, Takura Zhangazha
