President Edgar Lungu has assented into law the Cyber Security and Cyber Crimes Bill of 2021.
President Lungu signed the bill into law on Tuesday, 23rd March 2021 and said he is hopeful that the law will bring sanity to the usage of the internet in Zambia. The President said the law is meant purely to protect Zambian citizens from abuse by people who feel they can do or say whatever they want while hiding under the ‘veil’ of the Cyber Space.
He further stated that the law is aimed at protecting all Zambians, including those who are against it and that he had carefully scrutinized the bill before signing it into law.
