Kenya Says It Will Block .XXX

The Kenyan government has announced it will block access to the recently approved .XXX Top Level Domain with the Communications Secretary Bitange Ndemo saying Kenya will block .XXX websites from being accessible in the country.In his speech, Ndemo said .XXX would make it much easier for Kenya’s children to access pornography and that while the government has said it will not censor the internet, according to Kenya’s laws, pornography is not allowed in the country.The comments by Ndemo were made, ironically, at the 20th anniversary celebrations of World Press Freedom Day.”Some countries have that freedom but parents have the responsibility of stopping their children from accessing these sites,” Ndemo said. “Most parents in Kenya are not Internet savvy unlike their children so such material would not be controlled.”The talk by is available on YouTube at www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdGJY7hCVcs.
