Tanzania orders government employees to cut back on social media

Tanzania’s Transport and Communication minister has issued a directive, warning government employees not to spend a lot of time on social media at work.

Makame Mbarawa said the directive was aimed at boosting service delivery and getting workers to concentrate on their jobs.

He has ordered his own staff to serve as an example.


Mobile phone companies have promoted cheap data bundles to target the growing number of Tanzanians who are active on online platforms such as WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.[related-posts]
