Ugandan Pop Star, Panadol Wa Basajja is set to appear in court on June 15, 2015 for wearing a wet thong in her “Ensolo Yange” video which is against the New Anti-Pornography Act enacted by Ugandan President, Yoweri Museveni.

President Museveni introduced  two controversial legislation outlawing homosexual and porn in February 15, 2014. The first law, Anti-homosexuality Act, which punishes same-sex conduct with life in prison. The second one was the Anti-Pornigraphy Act, the government’s attempt to ban porn or any representation of the sexual parts of a person for primary sexual excitement.

Panadol, real name Jemimah Kansiime is the first person to face 10 years prison time for testing the new laws.

Officials took offence to the 21 year old’s racy video, in which she was seen dancing a soaped-up thong underwear.

Panadol's manager was detained but released on a fine after pleading guilty to the lewd act.

The singer argued that, "When I was making that video I never intended it for children; I intended it for adults. I did not sell or distribute the song. My rights have been trampled upon; my freedom of expression has been trampled upon", while adding, "I have not benefited from that video."
