‘Total internet shutdown’ in Zimbabwe

AFP, Harare

Zimbabwe imposed a “total shutdown” of the internet on Friday, a major provider told customers, after protests early this week triggered a ruthless security crackdown.

The internet had been partially restored after a first shutdown started on Tuesday.

“We were served with another directive for total shutdown of the internet until further notice,” Econet, the country’s biggest provider, said in a text message on Friday.

“Our lawyers advised we are required to comply with the directive pending the court decision on its legality. The earlier directive(s) are already the subject of pending high court application.

“We sincerely apologise for all inconveniences caused by the acts of government.”

The EU on Thursday joined the US and Britain in criticising the authorities’ response to the protests.
