Kenyans are not yet done with Ezekiel Mutua, KFCB CEO after he ordered a ban on adverts and music videos with explicit contents. He went a head and banned witch doctors, herbalists and healers from advertising unlicensed material.
Kenyans have bashed him on Twitter and have even made mocking lists of things Ezekiel should ban. Well, if you think Kenya’s advertising agents and broadcast media have been hit hard, wait until you see what Uganda has done.
According to Uganda’s Information Minister, Jim Muhwezi, the country’s cabinet has agreed to ban erotic dances and drama as well as vulgar language on broadcast media. Those who break the law risk being imprisoned for ten years or fined Sh10 million.
“Cabinet scrutinized the provisions of the Anti–pornography Act, 2014 with the view of addressing its ambiguity to ease its applicability in Uganda,” Mr Muhwezi said.
That’s not all, earlier in the year, Uganda’s Ethics Minister said that their government would spend up to Sh 2.6 billion on p@rn@graphy-detecticng software in their next financial year.
