As illiberal as such a policy is, it would be amusing to see something similar implemented in Ghana.
The moment the policy is implemented 90% of our actresses would be driven straight out of business.
Tanzania has taken a firm stance on n*dity on social media by entertainers by implementing a law which would ban anyone guilty of posting such a photo for six months.
The new law targets actors/actresses and musicians who post raunchy photos online.
The Electronic and Postal Communications (Online Content) Regulations was passed and signed into law last year and states the content banned as including: “indecent, obscene, hate speech, extreme violence or material that will offend or incite others, cause annoyance, threaten, or encourage or incite crime, or lead to public disorder, per the law.”
Already, reports indicate some prominent artists in the country including singer Susan Michael, stage name Pretty Kind, have already fallen foul of the law.
She’s currently serving a six months ban.
Tanzanian President John Magufuli has been praised for his stance against corruption in government since taking over, and is now turning to social ‘decadence’.
