We are in the era of social media, anything you post tend to go viral within one minute, beware of what you post online to avoid trouble for yourself. What he posted landed him in jail.
You might be posting something about someone thinking the person might just over look it, people are different Mr A might overlook, Mr B might arrest you.
He posted a video clip, laughing at an old photograph of President Magufuli, wearing a suit that appears to be a few sizes too large, went viral on social media in Tanzania.
According to his lawyer Bennedict Ishabakaki, Mr Sultan was detained on Tuesday and has been denied bail.
This should be a lesson to many people, learn to avoid trouble, not everything you see, that you get to post online just because you want to gain followers or you want to trend.
