“On Tuesday, after reports of brutality and a lawsuit against Zimbabwe’s Standard newspaper started to circulate on IRC, a small group of people decided to protest. It wasn’t long before there was a complete takedown of the ZANU-PF website, the Zimbabwean government portal, and the Zimbabwean Finance Ministry website.
By Thursday afternoon, the Zimbabwe African National Union (Patriotic Front) was partially online, after more than 40 hours of downtime. The government portal, www.gta.gov.zw, was still offline, and the Finance Ministry website had returned, but was unavailable to the public.”
