Hate speech laws in pipeline

STEVEN MVULA, Parliament
LAWS to criminalise hate speech will soon be formulated.
Vice-President Inonge Wina said in Parliament yesterday that hate speech has caused wars and conflicts in other countries.
Mrs Wina was responding to a question by Bwana Mkubwa Member of Parliament Jonas Chanda (PF) who wanted to know if Government intends to criminalise hate speech to deter people from promoting it.
“It will not be too long for the country to develop laws to deal with hate speech,” she said.
