Zimbabwe Telecoms Jammed After Violent Protests

Zimbabwe’s mobile phone networks and internet were partially shut down following protests, with one industry source saying the systems had been jammed and many users complaining of limited access.

“The telecom systems have been jammed. We don’t have the equipment to do it – so you can guess who did it,” the employee at a Zimbabwe mobile service provider in Harare told AFP on condition of anonymity.

Violent protests broke out on Monday over the fuel price increase.

Several people have reportedly been killed, but exact numbers have not been confirmed.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa announced the shock price hikes for petrol and diesel on Saturday.―Enca
