Show Notes

Internet shutdowns on the African continent have come to be a norm. So much so that in 2020, Sub-Saharan Africa lost $237.4 million to Internet censorship.

In Central Africa, the Sudanese government shut down the Internet in the country on Thursday, June 30, 2022, due to protests against the military government. This is at least the fifth time this is happening since 2019, and as Emmanuel says, it is "brute hammer tactics."
