    Why has Cameroon blocked the internet?

    Just a day before services disappeared, the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications issued a statement in which it warned social media users of criminal penalties if they were to "issue or spread information, including by way of electronic communications or information technology systems, without any evidence".

    The statement also confirmed that the authorities had sent text messages direct to mobile phone subscribers, notifying them of penalties, including long jail terms, for "spreading false news" via social media.

  10. 2 New Forums - All Things Africa!, Feb 11, 2017
  11. Destee

    Peace and Blessings Family,

    I have made some changes to the - Black History - Culture - Pan-Africanism - Forum.

    Yes, that was just one forum, but it has been split into 2 others, so far.

    1 - All Things Africa - a forum where all Africa specific threads can be
    2 - Pan-Africanism - African Diaspora - a forum where the these discussions can be

    I also changed the name of the original forum - Black History - Culture - Pan-Africanism.

    It is now called ... African American History Culture - for better focus.

    I finally get it, after 20 years! ... Brother panafrica would be so proud of me! :)

    In addition to the 2 new forums above, they are also within a new category - Africa - and we can add more forums under it, as the need presents itself. I do expect it to grow.

    I have moved some threads to both of the new forums, from the original forum and will do more as I'm able. I do see there are more, not only in the original forum, but all around the house, laying in closets, under beds, alla that - so I will be working on improving the housekeeping. I appreciate everyone's help by creating your threads in the forums that best fit the topic.

    YAAAAAAAAAAY AFRICA! ... :flowers: ... :flowers: ... :flowers:

    If you have any questions, please ask.

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:
