SOCIAL media users have been urged to be mindful of what they post as the consequences were real and far reaching.
Commissioner of Police Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho made this comment after a post alleging the abduction of a 13-year-old surfaced on the internet.
“The investigation process needed to take its course, and the release of information would have been from relevant law enforcement authorities,” he said.
“This latest incident is an example of how damaging social media can be when posts are based on rumors rather than facts.”
