The National Communication Council (NCC) has warned of sanctions according to Cameroonian laws on promoters of homosexuality in the country.
This comes after several reoccurring scenes of homosexuality found in broadcasting programs in Cameroon.
In a press release made public on Tuesday, June 13, 2023, the President of the NCC, Joseph Chebongkeng Kalabubsu cautioned media promoters and professionals to be on the look out.
The NCC boss noted this relating to LGBT films aired by foreign broadcasters and equally found in cartoons children watch often.
The LGBT community has gained steam globally in recent years, an issue the NCC intends to get rid by prohibiting homosexuality acts in cameroon.
Article 3 and 4 of the January 23, 2012 decree presents the respect of social communication freedom but at thesame time making sure morality dorminates especially that of children and youths in the media landscape.
Therefore defaulters will be punished in line with Cameroon’s Penal Code and those having contents promoting LGBT should get rid of it or risk being sanctioned.
