This is the final episode in our mini-series ‘Energising Africa’, where we investigate progress towards electricity, infrastructure and network access on the continent.
The United Nations declared internet access a human right in 2016. But network disruptions remain an everyday part of life in Sub-Saharan Africa, and some analysts say there is an increasing trend of governments blocking internet access during elections or civil unrest. Reporting from Tanzania, Michael Baruti investigates the impact of unreliable internet access. He speaks with digital inclusion specialist Carol Ndosi, and chief web advocate at the World Wide Web Foundation, Nnenna Nwakanma.
In this week’s Q&A segment, Joseph Kauzi from Mpulungu Day Secondary School in Zambia has a question about climate injustices. Send us your questions from anywhere in the world — text or voice message via WhatsApp to +254799042513.
