Communications minister Brian Mushimba has warned those in the habit of abusing Information Communication Technology (ICT) platforms that they will face the full wrath of the law.

Mr. Mushimba says the digital society that government has embarked on is meant to be used for creation of jobs and wealth, and not to promote anarchy in the country.

He has directed the Zambia Information and Communications Technology Authority (ZICTA) to invest more in changing the mindset of ICT users to ensure they use the platforms for the development of the country.

Mr. Mushimba said this in a speech read for him, by the Ministry’s Permanent Secretary Misheck Lungu.

This was at the Zambia ICT talent development Summit and Huawei ICT competition launch ceremony in Lusaka today.

And Chinese Ambassador to Zambia Ambassador, Li Jie said China has committed itself to helping Zambia develop the ICT sector as it has a lot of potential for development.

Meanwhile, Deputy Secretary to Cabinet Martine Mtonga who is also Smart Zambia National Coordinator, appealed to Zambians to appreciate government’s investment in the sector by taking it seriously.

Information and Technology Association of Zambia President Alick Siankumo said there is need to pay attention to ICT as one sector that can spur economic development.

And Huawei Zambia Country Director Martin Zhong called for continued investment in the sector for a better Zambia.

  1. Boss… it is your government abusing its citizens.

    Concentrate on ridding yourselves with corrupt leaders, then people will do the right thing.

    It is not lost on us that there are some good your government has done but could have been more, which unfortunately is ending up in the leadership pocket.

    You want to do the wrong things in government and asking your citizens to behave – am I the only one detecting hypocrisy here?

    Information technology is also used to disseminate information. Which in most cases is your government’s corruption. what has happened to the FIC report? Is such what you want us to stop blogging on? What hypocrisy!

    Do the right thing and everyone else will fall in line.

    • As always, PF trying to silence dissenting voices. Learning from our new masters, the Chinese. In China, you are not allowed to criticize the communist party. Clearly PF want the same in Zambia.

    • It’s the alternative to hardcopy state run media, that’s why they hate, without African confidential do think most zambians would have been aware of what is going on with social cash transfer?

    • This boy is running around like a headless chicken.

      I truly hope he is not part of the corruption scandals.

      He and his boss have let the country down.

      They should all go far far away.

      Now would be nice.

    • This corrupt PF id10t is trying to stifle dissent because it exposes their corruption and lays bare for all to see.

      Banya ba PF internet is here to stay and continue to expose their theft.

      Lungu must go before he sells the whole of Zambia off to the highest bidding thug

  2. BA MUSHIMBA-DO YOU KNOW THE MEANING OF FREEDOM OF SPEECH?

    WHICK ACT IN THE LAW ARE THE PEOPLE BREAKING?

    CAN ZICTA SIGHT A SPECIFIC LAW THAT THEY WILL BE USING IN PASSING YOUR COMMAND?

    IS THERE FREEDOM OF SPEECH IN THE LAND OF YOUR NEW COLONIAL MASTERS/LAST I CHECKED,THEY(YOUR FINANCIAL MASTERS) IN THEIR HOMELAND,THEY WILL ASSIGN A MINDER EVEN TO A TOURIST.

    IT’S A PITTY THAT YOU CAN SAY SUCH NUISENCE.

  3. This Bonehead, (thick as swamp Mud Cadre), is trying to threaten citizens from further exposing rampant Governmental corruption, co’z he is a beneficiary of the same graft thats disgusting “Normal non partisan, & straight thinking Zambians”
    THE CORRUPTION GAME IS OVER “BRIAN MUSH1N.DO”

  4. its a first time this man has given a speech to hIS MINION PS, he really likes to be under cameras, anyway stop WARNING PIPO WARN URSELF ON CORRUPTION PLEASE

  5. Kulibe iwe! You wont muzzle us from exposing your mass looting from the poorest of the poor. The wave of freedom of speech is too high up for you too tame it. We are woke sir

  6. Mushimba is using the strategy of distraction. Please attend to corruption allegations before donors out you! It is not about abuse of online platforms. It is about abuse of trust by those entrusted with authority that is at issue here. Awe mwe!!!

  7. Edgar Lungu is the best thing that happened to Zambia. He is humble, able, God-fearing and a Great Leader. He has brought so much development to Zambia and on behalf of the Zambian people, we love you. Like China, we ask that parliament changes the constitution and makes you life President. China has done it and is developing why can’t we? The UK has the Queen for life, Russia also has Putin for life and they are just fine.

  8. For your own information MUSHIMBA, this is a Sunami , you and your MASTER can not stop it . You better wake up young man and join the winning team. You know very well the nation is very ANGRY and HUNGRY with PF corruption. Could you NOT have chosen a better time to execute the instruction from your crooked MASTER. The BOAT is sinking , better you jump out and swim to safety with the Zambian Masses. Obviously nawishiba ifyo ndelandapo mwaice !!!

  9. Do you see any comments from the US? Nope. The goons here are fake and worship Mushimba. Just because they at one time partied with him, they don’t want to cross his path thinking his stolen and corruptly acquired wealth will rub off on them. There are thousands PF minions in the US because Mushimba is in cabinet. Their misery only translates into satisfaction when he comes back here to deposit stolen money and they speak to him on phone or follow him around. Sad miserable cadres.

  10. Most guys in the US are followers. Mushimba gets a pass because he was one of them. In the US when Lungu or Mushimba comes, most Zambians lie to their employers that they are either sick or to look important, they say the president of Zambia or minister is in the US and he has invited them for a meeting. Cadres supporting thievery as their parents languish back home. Mushimba cannot be criticized by US based Zambians. Probably those in Canada.

  11. All that effort posting a video abusing a woman. That certainly caught up with them. That stuff and many similar ones abound on the internet and have been tracked to the source. Same for those who were leaking GRZ documents.

    Heed the warning!!
