Premier: Ban sex scenes from TV

2012-04-24 14:23
Cape Town - Gauteng Premier Nomvula Mokonyane has requested television producers to remove sex scenes from soapies to help reduce violence against women and children, reports

The provincial head spoke at a prayer service held on Sunday in Soweto for a 17-year-old mentally ill girl who was gang-raped.

The newspaper said Mokonyane urged locally produced TV programmes to broadcast images that "do not corrupt the minds of the youth".

"Children must not watch people having sex in Generations [TV soapie] and think it is cool. We want to watch shows that will empower families," she said.

'Please delete it'

Mokonyane also appealed to those that had the video of the raped girl on their cellphones to remove it.
"Please delete it from your phones if you have it. A young man, engaging in sexual intercourse with someone who does not want to, is not good. It's even worse if that person is vulnerable.

"Not even animals do what happened to that young woman," she said.

The case has been postponed until Wednesday 25 April.
