The interim CEO of On Digital Media (ODM), Eddie Mbalo, was last week reported announcing that the organisation was “proud to bring porn to South African TV, – including pornography made in Africa in addition to Playboy TV and the hardcore Private Spice channel.”

The announcement spread panic all over Africa and especially in Uganda which prompted Chimp Corp, Nixon Segawa, to track down Christine Naggujja, the Public Relations Officer of StarTimes Uganda on Monday evening for a clear explanation.

Speaking at Soliz House, the company headquarters along Lumumba Avenue in Kampala, Naggujja refuted all the allegations that StarTimes Uganda also intended to introduce pornography as a best way of competing for the available market.

“The company does things according to the cultural and moral values of our area of coverage,” Naggujja stated, adding that “there is content that can be freely broadcast in UK but when it doesn’t fit the cultural and moral values of Uganda”.

“As StarTimes Uganda, we can never ever put pornographic content on our TV stations because we believe that this is against the moral set up of the Ugandan citizens who are our target market,” Naggujja clarified.


She further noted that since Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) is rolling out a campaign screening the content of all TV channels on board, they believe such content can’t be allowed in the Ugandan society.

“How can we bring in pornographic content and yet our mother company is based in Beijing, China where pornography is not allowed and their sites are blocked from such content? So, why would we bring it in Uganda?”


Naggujja, therefore, called upon the company customers and all Ugandans not to get scared and hence abandon or boycott their services because the major aim as to why StarTimes came into business was to focus on the family person who is at home and probably not a fun of football.


“This explains why we have a lot of movies, children channels and cartoon channels on our platform because our emphasis is on children and that other person at home; our moral values are very important and are our driving force,” she concluded.
