Traditional Leader Wants Anti-Pornographic Law Enacted
By Korboi K. Gbelewala, LINA Lofa County Correspondent

VOINJAMA, August 7 (LINA) - A traditional women leader in Lofa County, Kebbeh Jarboi, is calling on central government to enact what she
calls “Anti-Pornographic law” in Liberia.

Old lady Jarboi said the anti-pornographic law, when introduced will forbid the screening of pornographic movies across the country. She observed that the screening of pornographic movies is responsible For teenagers and young adults getting involved in vices that have the propensity to derail the nation’s culture, traditions and religious tenets.

Old lady Kebbeh Jarboi made the call in Zogolemai Thursday when the Christian Fellowship International donated several food and non-food
items to the disabled valued at a little over US$ 9,000.00.

The Traditional leader attributed the unpleasant dressing of young girls, prostitution, disrespect for religious and traditional norms partly to the screening of pornographic movies; adding “If this law is not introduced, Liberia will not be able to regain its pre-war traditional, cultural and religious status.”

She called on the government, traditional leaders, youth and civil society organizations and the religious community to support the idea of introducing the anti-pornographic law in order to save the country’s heritage.
