The two largest economies in Africa - South Africa and Nigeria - are each estimated to lose $500m (£375m) annually to cyber criminals, according to a 2016 McAfee report.
In addition, African governments are fighting against local and international hacktivist groups who have carried out several disruptive attacks in recent years.

As the mobile revolution continues to drive change across Africa, governments are trying to curb cyber crime - but is this an excuse to crack down on social media?

Although South Africa has specific anti-corruption laws on the books, malfeasance is famously difficult to root out, especially when it involves high-ranking officials.
While the nation struggles, South Africa's President Jacob Zuma spends millions on luxurious expenses. So just how corrupt is the country?

Has Zuma lost his grip on South Africa? The 2009 decision to drop more than 700 fraud, corruption, racketeering and money-laundering charges against his client, President Jacob Zuma, was a "message", Kemp argued, that the National Prosecuting Authority's "enormous powers" would never again be used to "decide who will be the president of the country" or "to engineer political results".
The president retains a grip on the ANC but scandals and court cases show his power is not as absolute as it seemed.

Former ANC spokesperson Denis Goldberg says it’s time Zuma steps down. It's time for this previously heroic leader to make another heroic decision and that is to step down in the interests of the ANC and the country.
As the fallout continues after South Africa’s Constitutional Court ordered President Zuma to refund money used to upgrade his Nkandla residence, former ANC spokesperson Denis Goldberg says it’s time Zuma steps down.

South Africa is the stuff of dreams for the intrepid traveler.
From game reserves to Table Mountain; Durban's Golden Mile to the country's stunning wine regions, there's much to capture the imagination.
But how about a trip around Cape Town's intriguing examples of graffiti art? Or a cycle tour around Soweto?

Injured elephant seeks out humans for help. Bumi Hills Safari Lodge manager Nick Milne realized the 30-year-old elephant was limping and appeared to be severely wounded. Since the in-house vet was away for the weekend on business, another wildlife vet flew 200 miles to treat Ben.
The staff tranquilized Ben and found a deep wound in his shoulder, likely from a poacher's bullet, as well as two more bullet holes in one of his ears.
They were able to clean and disinfect Ben's injuries, and he is now healing on the property
Patiently waiting for the bucket of water to be refilled.

Tucked away in Limpopo province, the pristine, rugged and ancient Waterberg region doesn't make it on to most South Africa travel itineraries and that's much of its appeal.
The Waterberg has soaring mountain peaks, antediluvian rock formations, expansive savannah plains, dense riparian forests and plunging river valleys.

The law firm Mossack Fonseca in Panama sells anonymous offshore companies around the world. It’s not illegal to own such a company or shares, but they can be used to cover up deals that could be illegal. Research by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) and a German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung has uncovered trade deals between Mossack Fonseca and several African public officials.
African public officials are among the high-ranking figures to find their names in the leaked Panama papers. Kofi Annan's son Kojo and a nephew of South Africa's President Zuma are among those listed in the disclosures.

President claims he did not act dishonestly but admits conduct during scandal was "inconsistent" with the constitution.
Opposition parties, who have been calling for the 73-year-old to resign, dismissed Zuma's response to the verdict.
"The president is misleading South Africa. He said repeatedly, he always wanted to pay. He never wanted to pay," Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane told the Reuters news agency after Zuma's speech.
