Film distributors have been given two months to dispose off pornographic material. The ultimatum was issued by the Minister of Ethics and Integrity Rev. Father Simon Lokodo on Thursday.

Lokodo together with officials from Uganda Communications Commission- UCC and the Pornographic Control Committee- PCC were meeting video libraries, Cinema hall and video hall operators at UCC offices in Lugogo.  

The meeting was meant to sensitize the operators about the dangers of pornography and the need to curb the vice in the country.

Lokodo warned producers and distributors of pornographic content that the law shall catch up with them if they do not abide.

Cue out: "...of Pornographic material"//

According to the Anti-Pornographic Act, it is illegal to produce, distribute or exhibit pornography. 

Lokodo says that it is important to fight pornography because of the dangers it poses to society.

He decried moral degradation that penetrates society due to exposure to pornography and the difficulty it brings to parenting and career development.

Cue out: "...of one"//

He says the fight should be collective to include ordinary Ugandans who might not even be engaged in producing or distributing pornography but know someone engaged in pornography.

//Cue in: "Kati nga nze..."

Cue out: "...tukivumirira"//

As a sign of partnership to fight pornography, the Ministry, PCC, UCC and the operators set ablaze compact discs that had earlier been confiscated from different distributors and video hall operators.
