I react to the story, ‘OTT tax is violation of freedom of speech’ (Daily Monitor, June 3).

Having reconsidered the arguments for and against the tax, I don’t think the social media tax is that odious anymore. I now think it is actually a clever tax.

Indeed this is a sin tax like tax on liquor and cigarettes. While we are at it, I suggest that they also tax all soft drinks, sugar and fast foods that are very unhealthy to our bodies to raise more revenue.

The social media tax is not a restriction to freedom of speech. You pay the State to use social media for whatever purpose. Besides, the Shs200 charged is not so bad.
