Freedom of Speech - Terms and Conditions Apply
This talk will look back at the history of free speech online in Africa.
Based on wealth of digital publishing experience, Tefo's talk will discuss how social media can be both an enabler but can also sometimes throttle freedom of speech. Tefo will also look at the requests for information made by African governments (and their related organisations) and how they try (sometimes with the collusion of Big Tech) to thwart free speech online.
