Better World Organisation Urges the Tanzania Communication Regulatory Authority to Block Access to All Websites Publishing Or Streaming Pornography
The Better World Organisation (BWO) has urged the Tanzania Communication Regulatory Authority (TCRA) to block access to all websites publishing or streaming pornography.
Speaking to journalists in the city on Friday, BWO director Zangina Zangina said that people in most parts of the country had access to obscene content on the Internet, something which he claimed “stimulates homosexuality and lesbianism.”
“In order to control people using the Internet to access pornographic materials, BWO which is a Non Governmental Organisation asks the Tanzania Communication Regulatory Authority to block access to more than 40,000 pornographic websites,” said Zangina.
Zangina added that plans were afoot to conduct a seminar, which should have been hosted by his lobby group in the city on 27 November to encourage girls to protect their virginity until they get married.
He said there was a growing tendency in the society of dishonest men deceiving girls into losing their virginity.
According Zangina, BWO also deals with the collection and destruction of illegal drugs, guns, and pornographic DVDs.
Other activities are building confidence in innocent virgins and fighting against homosexual and lesbianism.
Pornographic DVDs are being highly circulated with some children allowed unhindered access to them, as they are available in streets, Zangina observed.
He said, as part of the campaign against pornography, BWO had started visiting different schools to spread the message against the tendency, reaching the primary schools of Kibangu, Makoka and Kisiwani in Dar es Salaam city.
