Ku­dos to au­thor­i­ties for ex­pos­ing social me­dia ter­ror­ists

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News -

EDI­TOR — I would like to com­mend the law en­force­ment agents who man­aged to un­mask the three hooli­gans be­hind the di­vi­sive and vi­o­lent social me­dia mes­sages which have been cir­cu­lat­ing lately.

This should send a strong mes­sage to those har­bour­ing sim­i­lar in­ten­tions that no one hides be­hind the key­board for­ever and the long arm of the law even­tu­ally catches up.

Th­ese are the peo­ple whom the au­thor­i­ties have been warn­ing, some think that be­ing in the Di­as­pora shields them from the in­evitable scru­tiny which their ac­tions at­tract.

Of course overzeal­ous de­trac­tors on social net­works will try and mis­rep­re­sent facts on the ground at­tempt­ing to paint the au­thor­i­ties as peo­ple who are against free ex­pres­sion on social me­dia.

They ig­nore the un­der­ly­ing is­sues that all of th­ese peo­ple have been fan­ning. It would be un­fair to ex­pect the au­thor­i­ties to fold their arms when peo­ple are post­ing ter­ror mes­sages.

This ex­pose` comes as a timely as­sur­ance to the pub­lic that our law en­forcers are pri­ori­tis­ing their safety and well­be­ing by crack­ing down on th­ese social me­dia ter­ror­ists.

In­stead of us­ing the in­ter­net to bet­ter the prospects of the nation, they ac­tu­ally want to use such a use­ful tool to cause trou­ble. Daniel Nyam­beya.
