Here are the four bills President Cyril Ramaphosa just signed into law
President Cyril Ramaphosa has signed a number of bills into law, the most controversial of which is the Film and Publications Amendment Bill.
This piece of legislation, often referred to as the 'internet censorship bill’, has been criticised for being poorly drafted.
It provides the Film and Publications Board with the right to regulate online content, explains EWN reporter Gaye Davis.

Here are all four bills that the president has signed into law:
- the Overvaal Resorts Limited Repeal Bill
