Govt threatens to tighten social media, insists economy is good

In a joint address to the media on Wednesday evening, Finance Minister Patrick Chinamasa along with Industry and Information ministers Mike Bimha and Chris Mushowe , said Government will tighten social media which it blames for fueling shortages and panic buying.

Said Chinamasa:

It was a bombshell. What happened was not in sync with the prevailing situation in the economy across all sectors …the developments in the economy are very positive, there is positive growth in the economy… all economic indicators are in the right direction. The trajectory is on a growth path. The cause was social media, which means that it is a security issue. There is a political agenda, a regime change agenda. We are going to seriously look at what happened with a view to take corrective measures in the security arena. We need to understand social media and the forces behind it…….they have given us a timely warning about their intentions and clearly we will take the necessary measures to counter those nefarious activities.
