Earlier in May, Uganda’s parliament passed the Excise Duty Act (Amendment) Bill 2018, which introduced a mandatory fee of UGX 200 (USD 0.05) per day of use for services that include messaging and voice calls via Whatsapp, Facebook, Skype and Viber.The tax will likely push basic connectivity further out of reach for millions.The tax effectively limits access to social media sites which are a primary entry point for many new users to the internet in developing countries including Uganda.Indeed, it is in social media platforms that many have found relatable local content including avenues for knowledge exchange, civic participation and economic opportunity.Many social media users have turned to using Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) to remain online and avoid the taxes.
