PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu is hopeful that the people responsible for ensuring cyber security will carry out their mandate without fear.
The President also urged those charged with the responsibility of cyber security to be diligent when undertaking their duties.
“We hope that those who are charged with the responsibility of the cyber security will do so diligently without fear or favour and we as government will support,” he indicated.
President Lungu regretted that through cyber crime a lot of people have suffered hence the need to carry on with the fight.
“Let’s carry on with the fight a lot of people have suffered from a lot of bullying from cyber space some people have lost lives and I think it can’t continue,” said the President.
The President said this at State House in Lusaka yesterday during a meeting with the Cyber Hygiene Zambia team.
And Cyber Security Brand Ambassador Thokozile Muwamba said it is sad that Zambian morals have been degraded when it comes to use of internet.
Capt. Muwamba advised that Zambians must not turn away from upholding their Christian values as they use the cyber space.
“Let’s go back to upholding our morals. Whatever we do even on internet we should relate it to our Christian values. Zambia is a Christian nation,” she noted.
