The Government of Malawi is revealing plans to amend the Communications Act of 2017 in a bid to enhance protection of children from cyber bullying.
A survey report by the Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority and the National Statistical Office confirms a high proportion of children aged between 9 and 17 who got connected to the internet by themselves.
The report raises concern that if the authorities do not provide mechanisms for reporting sexual harassment, children who have access to the internet would be prone to cyber bullying including sexual harassment.
Information Minister Gospel Kazako explains that the statistics provide a good ground for the administration to work out ways to resolve the crisis.
