Parliament has passed the controversial anti-pornography bill.

The Anti-Pornography Bill legislates against the distribution, public exhibition, production and possession of obscene materials.

It also prohibits importation, exportation of obscene material, business sales, advertisement, public indecent shows and performances.

The minister of state for ethics and integrity Fr Simon Lokodo said that pornography fuels sexual crimes against women and children including rape, child molestation and incest.

He also said that there has been an increase in pornographic material in the Ugandan mass media and in the entertainment world, which all need to be controlled
