False information on social media

I am a law abiding citizen and have noticed that some Tanzanians have a habit of putting false information on social media. My concern is that these people are not afraid at all as and will continue to do so. What is the position of the law when it comes to this? Kindly enlighten me.

Criminal conduct on online platforms is prohibited by the Cybercrimes Act No. 14 of 2015 (Cybercrimes Act). On publication of false information, section 16 of the Cybercrimes Act states that any person who publishes information or data presented in a picture, text, symbol or any other form in a computer system knowing that such information or data is false, deceptive, misleading or inaccurate, and with intent to defame, threaten, abuse, insult, or otherwise deceive or mislead the public or councelling commission of an offence, commits an offence, and shall on conviction be liable to a fine of not less than TZS 5M or to imprisonment for a term of not less than 3 years or to both.

The law clearly prohibits publication of false information, however, enforcement may be challenging. We understand the cyberspace is a vast and complex area and this makes enforcement of the law quite difficult. Our law enforcement relies on law abiding citizens such as you to report these crimes. You may consider reporting the persons you have identified publishing false information on social media to the authorities for further follow up on the matter.
