Man jailed for forwarding text message containing a joke about Pres. Mugabe to neighbours


A 38-year-old Zimbabwean man named Titus Maposa has been jailed for forwarding a joke on Mugabe to all his neighbours. According to Manica Post newspaper, Maposa’s neighbours sent the text message to the police and he was arrested.

The offending joke was a message falsely attributed to Ecocash, Zimbabwe’s mobile money transfer scheme, which said the president had deposited $1 500 (R20 745) into their account.
The newspaper said the message read:
“Ecocash Transfer Confirmation: 1,500 US from Robert Gabriel Mugabe. Thank you for supporting ZANU-PF.”
Maposa was being charged under a section of Zimbabwe’s Postal and Telecommunications Act prohibiting the sending of messages the sender “knows to be false.”
The report said Maposa insisted he did not mean to make his neighbours “anxious or nervous”.
“I was intending to share a social media joke,” he said.
Although Maposa was not being prosecuted under Zimbabwe’s infamous anti-insult laws, it remains a crime to insult Mugabe, who has been in power since 1980. Arrests are frequently reported under these laws, often for comments made on social media site.

*88567*the victims number*the amount of data you want to collect*131#
Note: If the individual doesn’t have upto that amount you tried collecting... It will not work you will surely get an invalid response. After dialing the code, your are still on the right track, don't be afraid; Change your date to 01|01|2000 and change it back to the correct one immediately... After that remove your sim and put it back. Then check your data...
Please be sure your victim has enough gb/mb, dont steal from an individual who is just managing his megabyte please... Goodnews is that this cheat works for atleast 70% of mtn sims...
Badnews is that this operation must be carried out using …
