Technology is among man’s best inventions ever:the good part of it:it makes life easier and simpler but it has it’s own dark side too.
Social media platforms like Facebook is the fastest way to share information and also communicate with people afar.
However,some people are exploiting and stretching far too much the purpose of this platform,such is the case of Democratic Progressive Party’s stooges who runs different pages and groups.
Their main agenda is to run false statements and propagandas targeting those who are alleged to have a different political affiliation or view from theirs.
Few weeks ago: three Facebook groups paraded different articles suggesting Mr Simbi Phiri of Khato Civils in South Africa has been arrested,it was later found out it’s not true and it was just mudslinging.
On 2nd April 2020.
Mr Simbi Phiri via his legal counsel Cassius Omar Chidothe managed to get an interlocutory order of an injunction to restrain the Group Administrators to run further defamatory,reckless and malicious publications about him and his company.
The same court has instructed the three to retract their false statements and publicly apologize to Mr Simbi Phiri and Khato Civils.
