It said in a statement: “We have noted with concern that there has been an abusive social media message purporting to be coming from POTRAZ on telecommunications blackouts. We would like to inform all stakeholders that this message is not coming from POTRAZ,” read the statement.
“We advise stakeholders and consumers not to circulate this false message as it causes unnecessary inconvenience to users of telecommunications services in Zimbabwe.”
The fake circulating message comes as the Computer Crime and Cyber Crime Bill is expected to be presented to Parliament, which would protect Zimbabweans from cyber terrorists.
The proposed law comes against the backdrop of some Zimbabweans locally and abroad who are using the internet to communicate subversive material which seeks to unconstitutionally remove Government through violence.
