Cyber Security Bill To Deal With Fake Twitter & Facebook Accounts

Deputy Minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services, Energy Mutodi said that the Cybercrime and Cyber Security Bill will deal with cybercrimes when it becomes an Act.

Mutodi was responding to a question from the president of the Chiefs Council, Senator Fortune Charumbira during a question and answer session in the Senate on Thursday.

Chief Charumbira had asked what the government was doing to minimise the abuse of social media by malcontents. In response, Mutodi said:

We have fake Twitter and WhatsApp accounts . . . some of them have been used by criminals who use the accounts to defraud unsuspecting members of the public. We are in the process of coming up with a Cyber Security Bill which concentrates on this.

The Bill will also address some behaviour that seeks to infringe on the rights of other people such spreading of nude pictures or any information that will tarnish a person’s image.

Mutodi however, cautioned the Senate that it will remain difficult to arrest some of the culprits as they could resident be in other countries.

He added that there will be a balance between tackling cybercrimes and respecting citizens’ freedom of expression.
