Soon or later, it will be a illegal to posses or share any pornographic content over the internet or social media platforms.
This comes after Garissa Townsgip Member of parliament proposed a bill to amend the cyber crimes act to prohibit sharing of pornographic materials.
According to the Star, part of the bill read, ‘ A person shall not knowingly download pornographic materials, distribute, transmit, disseminate, circulate, deliver, exhibit, lend for gain, exchange barter, sell or offer for sell, let on hire or offer to let on hire, offer in any way or make available in any way from a telecommunication apparatus.’
This barely comes after a number of political leaders got themselves on trail over exposed sex scandals; others claiming ‘harassment’ from bloggers and political enemies exposing their private affairs.
Further, Duale claimed that receiving pornographic materials had became a challenge threatening many marriages and families; adding that the bill will serve as remedy for the same and save many families.
Nevertheless, Duale’s bill has served a major blow to commercial sex workers marketing their services on the internet, not forgetting young lovers who’re fond of sharing romantic graphics over social media and internet.
