Zambia Goes Back on Press Freedoms

In 2012, Zambia was ranked 72 out of 179 countries with press freedoms but has recently blocked Zambian Watchdog and Zambia Reports domestically. According to Zambia Reports’ sources, the country is considering blocking Facebook and Twitter after forbidden articles continued to circulated in the county through social media platforms.
