Global technological changes & science is irreversible. A lot of benefits but so many challenges ahead of us as a nation.
Everything is going on online; commerce, health, learning, security, government, mail and so many others.
Fiber optic cables continue to be laid as one of the struggle to ensure internet provision and access in all corners of the country.
In spite of all this; have we considered the fate of all this beyond the gains?
There so many challenges involved and we must confront them. Intellectual criminals who remain seated behind there computers, intrude in data bases of big organizations-under which law can we prosecute people who may hack into bank of Uganda, Electro Commission or Uganda Revenue Authority from just there living rooms? Will they be charged of trespass or theft?
It’s a challenge still to the minister of ethics & integrity while he battles immorality because today pornography s circulating on a rocket speed.
It’s possible than we can go the other way like china, Austria, Iran or Libya. That’s if we choose to block some sites.
Dr James Nsababuturo should foster a law to prevent misuse of technology most especially for evil or immoral motives.
We must enact a law now in which criminals of such nature can be prosecuted in trucked and arrested; and the time is now.
