Tanzania's government has approved a new law that regulates content online.

Bloggers, social media influencers and online platforms will now have to apply for a licence and pay a fee of 930 dollars if they want to keep their sites up.

The "Electronic and Postal Communications Regulation 2018" gives the government the right to revoke permit if a site publishes content that leads to public disorder and threatens national security.

Rights groups are concerned that this could affect freedom of expression in the country.
