Zimbabwe High Court Orders Government To Restore Internet Access

Published

on



Today, the High Court of Zimbabwe has ordered that the government restore full Internet in the country. This is days after Internet access was cut off by the government through a directive due to clashes that were happening in the country.

According to this communiqué by Media Institute of Southern Africa Zimbabwe, High Court judge, Justice Owen Tagu delivered the ruling saying that the Minister of State in the President’s Office responsible for National Security doesn’t have the authority to issue any directives in terms of the Interception of Communications Act.

That meant that the directives that were issued to shut down the Internet in the country were illegal and therefore without effect.

The court also said that only the President has the authority of making such an order where he can assign a Cabinet member to act on his behalf.

“The court did not consider whether the government has the right to completely shut down the Internet,” the communiqué said. “And if so, whether the Interception of Communications Act is the proper law to effect Internet shut downs or any other disruptions of communications.”

This directive by the High Court of Zimbabwe means that network operators and Internet service providers should restore full Internet access in the country.

Internet access in Zimbabwe has been shut since 15th January and during that time, we have seen Zimbabweans download VPNs to access their favourite social media platforms as well as download Telegram to use as a substitute to the blocked WhatsApp.

Support Legal launches Arabic ScaleUp platform for startups in the Middle East & Africa

Published

on

By


Support Legal, the Middle East and Africa’s first legal services platform for entrepreneurs and emerging companies, has made its free legal knowhow platform ‘ScaleUp’ available in Arabic.

Despite Arabic being the fourth most-used language online[i], it remains under-represented on the region’s most popular websites.

ScaleUp was developed to help entrepreneurs establish, fund and scale their businesses. The digital platform offers access to knowhow and practical advice, at no cost to the user. The Arabic portal has been added to give business owners in MEA the choice to access ScaleUp content in their native language.

Highlighting the importance Support Legal places on ensuring Arabic-speaking entrepreneurs have equal access to the legal knowledge necessary to launch and succeed, Hannah McKinlay, Principal and Head of Knowledge Management at Support Legal, said: “The UAE has the highest smartphone penetration in the world and Saudi Arabia is close behind yet most entrepreneurs don’t have access to much-needed business information in Arabic. Our mission is to break down barriers and increase access to knowledge for current and aspiring entrepreneurs. Business advice and know-how are just as important to a start-up as funding. We hope that providing entrepreneurs with access to the right resources, in their own language, will catalyse the region’s startup ecosystem.”

ScaleUp’s extensive library of go-to articles address every stage of the business lifecycle, from inception through to exit. Resources help answer common questions associated with agreements, funding, protection of ideas and the day-to-day running of a business. In line with Support Legal’s mission to empower the start-up community, increase transparency, and reduce barriers between entrepreneurs and legal professionals, no subscription or sign-up is required to access ScaleUp content.

“Governments across MEA are prioritising the acceleration of entrepreneurship as an engine for job creation and inclusive growth. In our dealings with businesses across the region, Arabic is often the preferred language for communication. Tools like ScaleUp Arabic can empower them with the knowledge they need to make the right decisions for the growth of their businesses,” added Ahmed Arif, Principal at Support Legal.

Support Legal is intent on partnering with businesses – particularly entrepreneurs and SMEs – helping to navigate essential legal and regulatory requirements for businesses to launch, grow and succeed. Access to advice and tips from senior lawyers with such extensive experience would prove otherwise unaffordable for start-ups. Headquartered in Abu Dhabi Global Market, it is the first legal services provider in the region to do away with billable hours entirely, understanding the disconnect between the way lawyers bill for their services and the way clients want to be billed.

Infinix Hot 7 is Officially Available in Kenya, Two Variants To Choose From

Published

on



Infinix has announced the availability of their new smartphone, the HOT 7 . It comes hot on the heels of the previous announcement of the availability of the more expensive Infinix Hot 6.

The Infinix Hot 7 will come in two variants: a 16GB/1GB RAM/single camera variant which will retail for Kshs 9,999 and a 32GB/2GB/dual back camera variant that will retail for Kshs 10,999.

The Infinix HOT 7 has a 6.2 inch 720 by 1520 IPS display with a 19:5:9 ratio and a notch. It runs on the Mediatek MT6580 processor and runs on XOS on top of Android 8.1 Oreo. The 16GB/1GB version is an Android Go edition which is a variant of Android that is built to run well on entry level phones like it.

One variant has a single 13MP camera at the back while the other one has a dual 13MP +2MP primary system. The 13MP primary camera has a wide f/1.8 aperture which means better low light photos. The selfie camera is an 8MP unit with a front LED flash for both units.

Both variants share a massive 4000mAh battery bank which is great since great battery life on a phone is crucial and we like to see this trend being the norm.

There is also face unlock and a fingerprint scanner to secure your phone. Infinix also boasts of their DIRAC mode which promises a powerful sound output when you play content with the phone.

The phone comes in a bunch of colours which includes Midnight Black, Cosmic Purple, Champagne Gold and Aqua Blue giving you more options for you to choose from.

If you are interested in these phones, check out the Infinix Hot 7 family of phones at their Infinix outlets countrywide or via their Infinix mall here.
