Be careful which WhatsApp group you join if you ever go to Zimbabwe.
The Minister of Cybersecurity Threat Detection and Mitigation has issued a terse release to the people of Zimbabwe on administering and joining WhatsApp groups.
The press statement, which was signed on 10 October 2017, says:
- all WhatsApp group Admins must have a level 1 certification from a Zimbabwean school dedicated to cybersecurity, Border Gezi University of Cyber Security, Threat Security and Mitigation
- members belonging to groups where Admin is not certified have committed criminal offence
- members, in addition to the group Admins, are also liable to unregistered WhatsApp groups
The changes take effect 1 November 2017
Interesting that Zimbabwe has a ministry dedicated to cyber security.
