Tanzanian government prevails over bloggers in court.

Published

on

 Tanzania’s government won a court case on Tuesday against bloggers and activists who sought to block the enforcement of tough, new online content regulations that require them to be registered and declare their financial backers.

Earlier this month, six human rights watchdogs, media organisations and bloggers successfully applied for a temporary court injunction against the rules.



But the government overturned that injection at an appeal hearing on Tuesday in a case that activists have condemned as an attack on free speech.

The new rules require bloggers to pay a registration and licence fee of up to $900 and disclose details of shareholders, share capital, citizenship of owners, staff qualification and training programmes, as well as a tax clearance certificate to obtain an operating licence from the regulator.

Bloggers convicted of defying the new rules could be fined at least 5 million Tanzania shillings ($2,200) or face imprisonment for a minimum 12 months, or both.

Digital activists say the rules are the latest crackdown on dissent and free speech by President John Magufuli, who was elected in 2015 on pledges to speed up economic growth and rein in corruption.
