ACHPR cautions Government against attempts to shut down social media during elections

The Special Rapporteur for African Commission on Human & People's Rights Lawrence Mute has cautioned the Government against any attempt to shut down social media during elections.
Though it has never happened in Namibia, the Commission says the dangerous trend of controlling social media has become a common occurrence in some parts of Africa of late.
