Tonga moving to curb social media abuse

From , 5:02 am on 5 March 2020

The Tonga government is moving to rein in social media.

This follows an outcry after violent threats were made on social media toward King Tupou VI and members of his family.

A investigation was started and this is expected to lead to the government making changes to social media access.

Our correspondent in Tonga is Kalafi Moala and Don Wiseman asked him what is going on.
