Hello Sm,

Ref: your concern with the Cybersecurity convention.

UNIFORUM ZACR has never recommended any country to adopt a Cybersecurity convention as we are not involved in any national Cybersecurity initiative. It's not our mandate.

There is an article at http://www.indexoncensorship.org/2013/11/african-convention-cybercrimes-silence-free-speech-online with content which may be similar to the ones you posted previously.
