Of late Zimbabwe has been flooded with smartphones of all types and models.
The coming of the smartphone has increased Zimbabwe's internet usage.
The advantages of accessibility are innumerable.
The one problem is the phone models and their functions.
In as much as these fakes, imitations and unknown brands bring convenience, they are suspect when it comes to security.
No one knows how much data and personal user information they send to their makers.
Most of them have no malware protection. They are very susceptible to viruses and other malware leaving the user at a loss.
I think there is need for a policy on the types and brands that are allowed in order to protect the users who are the public.
In eleven days the American Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton had perused through Africa, meeting Sudans' presidents Al Bashir and Kir, Malawi's Joyce Banda, Nelson Mandela, attending the funeral of Ghana's Atta Mills.
Clinton also had a message for Africa's autocratic leaders. In the message she urged the leaders to embrace democracy. The message will obviously fall on deaf ears as most African governments cant take advice.
Clinton also promised Africa with more trade agreements and developmental assistance. This is key to encouraging democracy and promoting human rights. With more trade comes more interaction and the growth of an enlightened middle class.
The middle class is more informed and so more empowered to fight and defend their rights. This is the class that has led most of mordern day revolutions.
Clinton must take that message back home that if America allows more trade with Africa, democracy will win.
