Uganda's parliament has passed a law to tax people's social media use.
Uganda President Yoweri Museveni has been pushing for the tax since March, when he wrote a letter to Finance Minister Matia Kasaija saying that the revenue generated would help the country "cope with consequences of olugambo [gossiping]."
The law kicks in July 1, but how the government will enforce it remains unknown.
The bill also imposes a 1 percent levy on mobile money transactions, which some politicians argue will have a negative impact on low income Ugandans who have no local bank.
In Uganda's neighbor, Kenya, Facebook users were encouragedto report violence in the country's 2017 elections.
