Guinea President and his lead state attorney have thrown the entire African continent into a state of joy after winning a landmark case against Mark Zukerberg. The case was reportedly adjudicated upon in the United States of America.
Mark Zuckerberg is the Chief Executive Officer of popular social media site facebook. According to Deutsche Welle DWTV, Mark Zukerberg's company deleted a post which was to be used as evidence for the Gambian judiciary.
Explaining the content of evidence, some Myanmar officials wrote some hate speech against some Rohingyans. The Rohingyans are a minor muslim community located in the Gambia.
The hate post attracted condemnation from all angles linking it to the Gambian genocide. When the Rohingyans were sued in the Hague, Mark Zukerberg's company facebook quickly deleted the post. Efforts for the Gambian judiciary to retrieve the post from facebook proved futile.
The Gambian President quickly sued Facebook to forcibly present the Post to be used in Court. This afternoon, the USA court ruled in favor of Gambia. Mark Zuckerberg was instructed to present the Post to Gambian Authorities Within 24 hours.
" This is a victory for all Africans. Our Judiciary is very strong one. Africa is rising. Let's celebrate this victory" A Ghanaian Theophilus Kyekyeku Asumani joined Gambians to celebrate.
