    Women cannot attend a concert in some places?
    The music industry is still unequal?
    This is why we joined Freemuse in focusing on women on Music Freedom Day on 3 March 2017 .

    Data Must Fall :Now What?

    The exorbitant price of data is an issue that reached tipping point in Zimbabwe in early January 2017 when local telecoms regulator POTRAZ set new minimum prices for mobile data. This move made mobile data in Zimbabwe even more expensive. Then mobile telecoms operator Econet increased its data prices 500% above the POTRAZ floor price of 2 cents per mega byte to 10 cents per mega byte. A massive backlash from citizens online under the #DataMustFall campaign against POTRAZ, the Ministry of ICT & the telecoms operators lead to the Minister of ICT being forced to reverse the directive.

     

    Despite reluctantly reverting to the old price structure, the price of data remains high in Zimbabwe. The UN recognizes that low data costs have the potential to drive economic growth. Now that data has fallen how can the price of data be reduced further ? How can we better provide access to internet and alternative information for all Zimbabweans? Does this victory show the power of social media activism? Was government trying to cut down access to the internet ahead of the 2018 elections? And are the cellphone networks only motivated by money?

     

    Moto Republik invited everyone for  an in depth discussion with leading thinkers, activists and company representatives on these issues in partnership with Open Parly ZW
