HARARE, JAN 15 — The internet access in Zimbabwe’s capital Harare was cut Tuesday morning, which made internet users facing difficultly to access the web.
The interruption on mobile internet and social media started on 9 a.m. local time. Most mobile phone users began having problems communicating on the popular Whatsapp platform, and then the access to other social media like Twitter and Facebook became difficult.
People could still use laptops and computers to access internet before the access was completely down on about 11:30 a.m. local time.
The Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions and some civic leaders called for a three-day shut-down, which is from Monday to Wednesday, following the announcement of fuel price increases, arguing that ordinary people were being subjected to more suffering. – XINHUA
