Concerned Citizens Asks Authority To Act On Abuse Of Social Media

Spokesperson for the group Thokozani Banda has said that using fake news is dangerous, especially during this period when various political parties are going to hold elective conferences and the country is going towards elections.

Banda has referred “Bakili Muluzi TV and Limpopo FM” on Facebook as some of the social media pages being used in such propaganda campaigns.
