Arresting people for Whatsapp messages

Big ad in the newspaper today,

Essentially a bounty has been put up to report this. While rumor mongering is a big problem here, 3 years in prison seems an unequal amount of punishment for something like this. Are there any actual laws around this and how this can properly be prosecuted?
