Zimbabwe suffered a disruption to both internet services and landline phone calls today, the state-run Herald newspaper reports.
The disruption was blamed on a tractor cutting cables on the South African side of the border, and municipal employees severing cables while doing work in a suburb of the capital, Harare, it reports.
Cyber Security Minister Supa Mandiwanzira denied allegations that the government had cut internet services.
The newspaper quoted him as saying:
We are upset that internet connectivity is not available or has not been available for most of the day.”
