The Anti-Pornography Act 2014

Sections 2, 3, 13, 16 and14 have great potential to inhibit media freedom in Uganda. S.3 (1) provides that; “A person shall not produce, traffic in, publish, broadcast, procure, import, export, sell or abet any form of pornography.” Under Section 3 (2), on conviction, the offences attract a fine up to Uganda shillings ten (10) million (about USD 5,000) or imprisonment not exceeding 10 years or both.
