If you woke up to zero notifications from your social media accounts on July 1st 2018, and wondered if something was amiss, then let us remind you that our dear government has imposed the Social Media Tax. Basically you have to pay a daily, weekly or monthly "tax" fee that will give you access to your social media accounts. As ludicrous as that sounds, yup, its the truth. The tax fee is 6000/= Ughshs or about $2 a month. Ugandans as usual flocked to social media to air their grievances about the tax.

These are some serious albeit funny complaints/tweets that we captured.
