For a very long time Uganda have always wanted to put an end to pornography.but I do think there is actually more to this action,or it is an infringement of people’s privacy.last year,the East African nation’s government place an order for Pornographic detecting machine”which was meant to be delivered in September 2016.

 

The interesting part of this,is that it was said that the machine will be able to detect both deleted and current pornographic materials that are store on people’s computers in Uganda.and it also includes detection and blocking of porn photos,videos or any graphics taken or saved on anyone’s phone,computer or camera.They also take a step in setting up a pornographic control committee to implement the law.

The machine cost around $88,000(a whopping UGX 300 million)and is developed in south korea.it”ll join the Uganda’s Anti-pornography law of 2014 which state that the penalty for any offender upon conviction is a fine of $3,000 (UGX 10 million)failure to do so is 10 years in jail.

I do think this would put a little sense of morality on the people of Uganda but looking at it from a different perspective,this shouldn’t be an issue.I’m sure there are more important issue to be addressed in the country rather than spending such big amount on machine.
