Watching porn in this country can get you in serious trouble!

A committee has been inaugurated to combat the issue of pornography which is believed to promote more immorality.

Reverend Father Simon Lokodo, the country's Minister for Ethics and Integrity said on Tuesday, August 29, 2017, that a committee has been set up to address the menace, The Nation reports.

This bid is expected to gulp a whooping sum of $500 million on a yearly basis according to the news company.

The government official who used to be a Catholic priest blamed porn for other immoral behaviour such as drug abuse among youths, incest, teenage pregnancy and abortion, homosexuality and lesbianism and defilement.

Outlining the objectives of the committee, Lokodo said, “The nine-member investigate team will be outfitted with 'top-end gadgets' to monitor or intercept the downloading, watching, sharing or transmission of pornographic material.

“In addition, inspectors will be assigned to conduct on-the-spot checks for pornographic material.

“The team will also be supported by 30 to 40 technical and administrative staff and anyone caught distributing or using pornographic material would be handed over to the police."

Compared to western societies, Africa has the least patronage when it concerns unconventional behaviour.

Homosexuality for example has met very stiff resistance in most African countries who went as far as employing legislative means to preserve their cultural values.

Some couples mostly rely on pornography to set things in motion. What happens to them now? Tough luck?
