Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) ordered internet service providers to block pornography websites in Uganda.

According to Daily Monitor, UCC executive director, Eng Godfrey Mutabazi, banned 27 porn sites 2 of which have been blocked and made inaccessible by mobile phone users.

The chairperson of the Pornography Control Committee, Annette Kezaabu, told Monitor there is a drop in the number of people accessing pornography after they blocked the prominent porn sites.

In July, Mutabazi wrote to telecommunication companies and internet service providers, ordering them to “ensure that pornographic material is not uploaded or downloaded through its services”.

Some of the porn sites were carrying leaked nude videos of Ugandan celebrities and others have been dealing in escort services (those that advertise sex workers).
