Government told to stop irritating citizens with spam messages

The Zambia Consumer Association –ZACA- says there is need to revise the frequency of GRZ text messages sent to consumers of mobile phone services.

Citizens have taken to social media to express their displeasure with the inundation of messages from government talking about the so called peace, unity and patriotism but the same government is in the forefront dividing the country. Citizens have described the messages as unsolicited spam as the said messages do not people’s concerns such as lack of job opportunities, abuse by Chinese slave masters, institutionalised corruption etc.

ZACA Executive Secretary Juba Sakala tells Phoenix News that there is need to ensure these messages do not become irritating to the people.

Mr. Sakala adds that Zambia has in the recent past experienced a lot of division coupled with hate and tribal attacks.

And Political Analyst Cephas Mukuka feels that rather than sending text messages to every citizens with a mobile phone, government should come up with one message that can be published in various media platforms.
