2. Proposed Zimbabwe Bill
Speech in and outside of Zimbabwe is clearly not free. BBC reports that Zimbabwe is planning to introduce a law to punish people who are deemed “unpatriotic” because they criticize the country when abroad. People seen as unpatriotic for allegedly undermining the national interest abroad could face criminal charges if the measures being considered are passed. The move is part of a plan to improve the government’s international reputation, but campaigners and opposition parties argue it is another “vehicle for oppression”, in the words of Dr Madhuku.
