Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni yesterday signed into law the Anti-Pornography Act banning pornography and outlawing suggestive music videos and revealing clothing.
The law will now require police and other security agencies to register offenders with varying penalties for repeat offenders. A committee to oversee implementation of the law will keep an archive of offenders and measures to rehabilitate them.
In the law, internet service providers will also be expected to put measures in place to prevent the access of sites with pornographic material. The law has however been met with mixed reactions social media users dercy the excessiveness of the legislation.
