Pornography Tops Zimbabwe’s Internet Use

Zimbabweans are spending an inordinate amount of time watching pornography online, according to statistics from the Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe (Potraz).

The data reveals that adult entertainment and related websites are among the most frequently visited sites in the country

Evidence Mazhindu, Potraz’s CIRT & Enforcement Deputy Director, attributes this trend to idleness and a lack of productive activities among Zimbabweans.

“People are spending too much time online, and instead of using the internet for productive purposes, they are indulging in pornography and other non-essential activities,” Mazhindu said in an interview with ZiFM Stereo News.

Mazhindu believes that authorities need to invest more in ICT research initiatives to address this issue. “We need to find ways to promote responsible internet use and encourage people to use technology for productive purposes,” he added.

The statistics also show that betting and social media sites, such as Facebook, are among the top ten most visited sites in Zimbabwe. The trend has raised concerns about the impact of pornography on individuals and society as a whole.

Excessive pornography consumption has been linked to addiction, social isolation, and decreased productivity. Moreover, it can perpetuate harmful attitudes and behaviors towards women and marginalized groups.

As Zimbabwe grapples with this issue, it is essential to consider the broader implications of excessive pornography consumption and work towards promoting responsible internet use.
