In her address, Koliwe Majama highlights the need for the full adoption and implementation of internet rights and freedoms at a time when most of our interactions have moved online due to the coronavirus pandemic and, simultaneously, our internet penetration rate has decreased due to reasons attributed to the current pandemic. She recommends the full engagement of civil society, governments, the private and public sectors, and other industry experts to mitigate the effects of the current pandemic on internet rights and to further solidify internet rights and freedoms across the board.
