Mr Lokodo, who has been on a public campaign against pornography, blamed it for being behind “drug abuse among youths, incest, teenage pregnancy and abortion, homosexuality and lesbianism and defilement”.

He called pornography “one of the deadliest moral diseases in this country” that needed to be stopped if the country is to develop.
