PRESS STATEMENT – Making PORN illegal not a solution

The move by Garissa Township MP Aden Duale to illegalize possessing or publishing pornographic content through the Computer Misuse and Cybercrimes (Amendment) Act, 2020 is an “act in haste”. Illegalizing PORN will only result in a boom for the pirated porn industry. We are vehemently opposed to this Amendment Bill. We believe that MP Aden Duale is being driven by a religious bias in pushing for such a punitive Bill.

As far as we are concerned, adults have a right to watch porn in the privacy of their homes and that right should not be taken away.

Illegalizing porn is not the solution at all. Educating the youth about what sex and related behaviors are must be on the agenda of the government. The proposed ban can never be a fool-proof solution. It will probably increase the sale of pirated porn. A ban of this kind might actually increase sexual frustration and lead to other sexual and social problems.

Instead of banning PORN SITES, we propose the introduction of mandatory sex education as part of our education curriculum. Sex education will actually limit porn viewing among adults. Parental guidance of age-appropriate surfing may also help.

We urge Parliament to reject the proposals in the Ammendmend Bill.
