A Zimbabwe court has ordered the government to bound mobile operators to continue internet services which were blocked out by the government during civilian protests.
Zimbabwe high court ordered the government to resume internet services
Civilian protests against a rise in fuel prices last week. It led to the closure of internet services in the area which began on Tuesday.
The move has provided a chance to critics of President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government to blame him for closing internet services in order to stop media for broadcasting security clampdown before the world. High Court Judge Owen Tagu instructed mobile operators to instantly restart providing full services.
Mnangagwa arrived back Zimbabwe after cutting short a foreign tour for investments at the World Economic Forum in Davos. The government lawyers didn’t comment on the verdict or clarify that either they will appeal against the decision or not.
The police arrested secretary general of the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions for involving in a stay-at-home strike over fuel protest.
The law enforcing agencies claimed that three people killed in the protests. However, human rights groups suggested that at least dozens died. According to them, scores of people received gunshot injuries while police arrested hundreds for public order charges.
