Nakuru - The Nakuru County assembly is set to debate a bill aimed at banning the sale, distribution and production of all pornographic material in the County.
The bill drafted and tabled by Nakuru Member of County Assembly, Michael Wang’ombe seeks to have pornographic material sellers, distributors and producers as well as consumers jailed up to five years or fined KES 500 000.
According to Wang’ombe, the Bill seeks to protect the County especially Nakuru town from turning into a pornographic town.
Speaking in Nakuru town Wednesday, Wang’ombe said that if pornography is not controlled then Nakuru town will turn to the evil Las Vegas of Kenya.

“There is a lot of evil happening in Nakuru town and this includes the production of pornographic material which is then sold to residents including minors at very cheap prices. This bill is aimed at cleaning up our town and preventing it from turning into a pornographic headquarters of Kenya,” said Wangombe.
The Bill further allows the County government to issue and revoke licenses of entertainment joints mostly cinema studios that will be found showing pornographic content.
