Word reaching Xclusive Ug News desk is that the Pornography Control Commmittee is hunting for socialites Judith Heard and Jack Pemba for allegedly producing pornographic photos and videos.
Many have criticised the committee for being toothless and at best harmless barks.
For this not word has been doing rounds that it stepped into the territory of models and journalists as then UCU’s Lilian Rukondo was arrested. Ashburg Kato was also recently in the coolers for distributing Rukundo’s sex tape.
The committee has now gone onto hunt the big cats; Heard and Pemba.
On April 23, a sext tape involving a female socialite known as Suleman and a man allegedly as Pemba was released on snapchat.
Through her facebook account, Suleman claimed that Pemba leaked the Video after she failed to remit $5,000 (Sh18.5m) ransom.
In the post she noted that she was not willing to pay any amount of money. However moments later, Pemba denied having leaked the video. He also said he was not the man in the video either.
Well, as the Suleman-Pemba odeal vanished in the media, Judith Heard’s nudes leaked again the second time in May, taking us for another porn frenzy.
With no comfirmation however, it is apparent that its her Jilted Lover who had leaked the pictures, leaving her with a new name Ms Bean which ran for weeks on all social platforms mostly whatsapp.
This compelled Judith Heard to come out publically and apologize. The Concluding statements on her facebook read – For my fans, family, friends sponsors, my sincere apologies for any inconveniences caused in the course of the hater’s satisfaction of bringing me down. MISSION FAILED.”
Both Pemba and Judith Heard are not in the country but as soon as we get word that they are any where within the country’s bounderies, we have tasked the police to arrest them.– Siad Dr. Annet Kezaabu Kasimbazi, the Chairperson PCC.
Keezabu warned that the committee will ensure that no Ugandan poroduces and/or shares nudes among other pornographic materials. Kezaabu also vowed to protect families and children against pornography. Pornograhy corrupts the mind Kezaabu added.
The committee is corroborating with the ministry of ICT, NITA, UCC and the Police to apprehend the culprits. Kezaabu also said the commission has the capacity to tell who shared what and at what time.
