[ooni] Internet disruption in Gabon amid coup attempt

ooni.torproject.org/post/gabon

On 7th January 2019, a military coup was attempted in Gabon in a bid to end more than 50 years of rule by President Ali Bongo’s family. The coup attempt was quickly foiled. Security forces reportedly killed two suspects, arrested seven others, and Gabon’s government retained control.
Meanwhile, a curfew has been imposed and NetBlocks reported that access to the Internet has been shut down.

@taziden Basides the facts, the article, this rises a lot of questions. Who has the keys/power/777permissions to shutdown access to Internet in any african country?
