Guest, you don't know what "hardcore" porn is... but someone has tried to explain it above. On Multichoice? No. In our bedrooms? Yes!

Do you need lessons in how to change channels or to refuse to watch the so caleld porn ? Can you please stop trying to decide for me what I need to watch. Frankly speaking I have no time for this nonesense that is supposedly un Christian. Porograpgy for me is seeing a thief like Frederick Chiluba praising GOD for protecting him from prosecution over his ill gotten gains including a stolen wife !!!!

The hypocrites wh want to claim a moral high ground do not know what they are talking about. Anyone who has been to a Scandanavian country can attest to the high moral standards and honesty of socirty there which by the way is mostly atheist than the so called Christian Zambia or even the USA.

I think these hypocrites should mind their own business. I am over 21, I pay my taxes and no I do not need you to choose what I watch. So please stop wasting our time with none issues. Maybe help us recover the millions of dollars your born again President stole rather than insult us with your condescending and patronising attitude.

These guys seriously need to get a life.

Lol Bima!

You might as well change to ID to pornographist, seeing you ve so well enlightened us on what you like to watch. I know, lame joke.

My 2 cents is that sex was never meant to be a spectator sport, which is why so many vices arise from porn.

Why do I have the feeling that some of these comments are coming from an employee of multichoice who is afraid that the company will be investigated for breaking the law and he has now gone into a frenzy trying to distract the topic from the real subject at hand?

I don't care whether pornography should be illegal or legal, moral or immoral, allowed or disallowed. But now that it is illegal, is this company exempt from the law? Can the government decide how they determine who should be exempt from this law?

You are really out to get them. Even imagining stuff. Are you a competitor? New cable channels? Salesman? Agent? Shareholder?

Multichoice shows soft core pornography. Hard core is......well hard core is hard core.

Anyhow i can see a few issues here.
1. Can someone help clear the academic issue of whether multichoice is actually breaking the law?

2.That aside, the mere fact that,like all other temptations the choice is ultimately our, makes complaining about this poor form indeed. Parental control, wee hours, you have to be a seriuos fan to endure all that, so why complain?
3 The issue of "Moral code" , christian nation and perceived accompanied hypocrisy is another thing all together. I know people have strong views about it.

Personally i think legislating morals is counter productive. People should be able to make there own decisions vis right and wrong.

Teacher,

Yes the initial post presented the legal question. But subsequent contributors, especially Christians, started voicing their objection to porn on TV based on their own version of morality. Some of these moral issues should be left between a man and his God.

I agree that the question here is a legal one. So for once, let's leave the personal choice stuff out - whether you are moralist or not.

The simple question is why should the government jail one person selling porn and let the other one go scot free?

The so called soft porn on multichoice would get one a few years in jail if you were caught selling on Cairo Rd. Try recording from multichoice and selling Hugh Hefner and his girls on the street. You will receive counts you cannot even count - including from multichoice.

Will the government stop me if I setup my own shop in town that sells porn material - on legal grounds - even if I provide my clients with all the parental guidance and necessary controls (under 18 labelling blah blah)! I think that is the basic question ladies and gentlemen.

To attempt to answer my own question (can you believe its mine now :) ), the legal systems that determined those specific laws have been rendered archaic by technology. When some of those laws were written, they couldn't possibly anticipate internet, satellite TV and mobile tech. To stop multichoice from broadcasting adult R rated shows, the govt would have to go all China and do the same to internet providers. Otherwise, the legal system is unfair as it stands. The law is old and needs to be revised? To what you say? To the democratic wishes of the Zambian people. That's right: We the people! nuff said.

Frankly its time Zambia moved out of the Stone Age and stopped providing a platform for these fake so called moralists. Go to Northmead any day after 2000 hours and one of these big mouth hypocrites has prostitutes soliciting right at the gate of his church !!!

When will people understand that we are all adults and wise enough and educated enough to make our choices. if we enforced every law on the books believe me we would have chaos.

Pornography is not an issue warranting to drag Multichoice to court.As a teenage in Kaunda's police state I accumulated a serious collection of hustler, Penthouse and playboy. Bought right here in Lusaka !!! I even imported it as registered mail. No hassles !!!

I am now the father of three teenage girls. My job is to make sure they are well adjusted and moral individuals. I htink I have done a good job and yest they will be exposed to porn and they will probably look at it but like most normal Zambians will move on to other things.

Frankly with street kids everywhere malnutrition in the clinics, corruption everywhere a little bit of skin on Multichoice is simply not an issue.

So once again get a life or ask your six year old for lessons on how to use the remote on your DSTV it is that simple.

i Love the way a Typical Zambia mind works. You will find a "Pastor in a red suit,tie and shirt on ZNBC paid by you know who lying through his teeth but he will always find a way to put in the christian nation close.We are a christian nation full of theiving,prostitutting,corrupt porn watching slick fellows but every time some one reminds us of that we go all christian naion on them.DSTV has parental lock for PG,16 18 and so on,if you fancy some pick me up soft cat fight you either go to break point,Blue Bridge,ndeke,mayela,tall trees,bulawayo,Mukupa,Roko or tune in to multi choice.if you are a parent and you would want the hormone infused brain of your son not to see violence simply call multi choice and ask how you can block all 16 and abouve rated shows or a specific chanel.(fyi the kid is probably streaming the latest justin slayer/larry flint from the iphone you bought him)...

At the risk of sounding like a broken gong, I believe JM asked a LEGAL and not a moral question. Question is: is multichoice breaking the Zambian law (archaic or not)?

We have heard enough blah about PG ratings and blocking and so forth. The original question still remains unanswered.

Where is Girl? I thought she was a lawyer. Can you help PULEEES?

Bamwine,
You said it, not me. A broken gong.

Just chill, mudala. Let the people talk. There is something to be learned from everyone's point of view. Even the dull ones. Don't be such a stickler for rules. Just hang loose and enjoy the ride.

It's encouraging to see people standing up for their right to watch porn. I'm really glad to see this. I wish more Zambians would speak out for my guilty pleasure of choice. Ganja. Let's legalize the herb, people. Let us not be fooled by colonial mentalities. Who's with me??

Just thinking aloud. A person running a shabeen can be arrested for selling the same product being sold by a licenced bar owner. The fact that MC is licenced makes their programs legal. Now i understand why they show soft porn, quite frastrating! Does someone know any institution licenced to show hard porn in Zed?
