    All Eyes on Me!

    All Eyes on Me!

    In this episode, we get into the business of government surveillance. We go to Ethiopia, Nigeria, South Africa, and Uganda to inquire how and why governments surveil their citizens, tap our phones, lurk in our emails, and follow our digital footprints. We discuss why the South African RICA law, aka surveillance law, was declared unconstitutional, and probe why Nigerian lawyers have taken their Communications Commission to court. We examine the mass deployment of CCTV cameras in the streets of Kampala and ask why Kagame is hacking WhatsApp.
