It’s Illegal To Access Social Media Using VPN – Minister Ogwang

By Aritha Ariho

Uganda’s minister of State for ICT and National Guidance Peter Ogwang says as far as government is concerned, all Ugandans are supposed to be currently off social media since it got blocked last week.

He has warned all those “illegally accessing social media using VPN” – only that the minister himself is also on social media.

Social media and eventually internet was switched off last week ahead of the general elections on January 14.

Whereas internet was switched back on this Monday, Ogwang says Ugandans’ post-election behaviour will determine when social media will be switched back on.

He justified the internet shutdown, saying the opposition had created parallel tally centres which they wanted to use to broadcast fake results.
