Uganda internet service providers finally blocked pornography websites in fulfilment of a directive issued by the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC).

Pornhub, Xvideos and Youporn are among 25 of the 27 banned websites that cannot be accessed on mobile phones in the East African Community (EAC) member state.

The Daily Monitor reports that the three blue video sites were among the top 100 most visited websites in Uganda before the ban took effect.

The sites have been providing pornographic material for free.

However, users of Virtual Private Network (VPN) can access the banned sites.

There are also other websites that are acting as proxies for the banned pornography sites.
