Opposition Party for National Unity and Progress -PNUP- President Highvie Hamududu has urged government to use the Cyber security and Cyber Crimes Bill to arrest wrong doers in the cyber space.

Hamududu says numerous social media platforms are being used by criminals as tools of mudslinging.

Speaking when he addressed the media in Solwezi, North Western Province, Hamududu said the contents of the cyber security and cybercrimes Bill have the potential of arresting criminals in the cyberspace.

He has however urged government not to use the cyber security bill to infringe on the rights of citizens, adding that the introduction of the law is meant to provide security for everyone in the cyberspace.

Hamududu said the bill is meant to provide responsible use of social platforms.
