Dan Lu risks arrest over immoral music video; 2-year jail term waiting

Risks being arrested for obscene song

Information that Shire Times has gathered is that prosecutors in the Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP) in the Ministry of Justice are considering instructing the police to arrest an aging musician Dan Lufani for producing an unbelievably obscene language song in a cinematographic music video that has gone viral on the social media calculated to corrupt public morals.

The prosecutors as they did with one errant musician Mwiza Chavura will charge Lufani with contravention of section 179 of the Penal Code on the offense of obscene matters or things. Among other things, the section provides in its sub-section one that “Any person who—(a)makes, produces or has in his possession any one or more obscene writings, drawings, prints, paintings, printed matter, pictures, posters, emblems, photographs, photographic negatives or prints, cinematograph films, gramophone records or other contrivances for the reproduction of sound or any other obscene objects or any other objects tending to corrupt morals; is guilty of an offense and shall be liable to a fine of K500,000 and to imprisonment for a term of two years.”

Dan Lufani, a Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) musician, will surely face the long arm of the law once the civilized Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) gives the nod to have him arrested for attempting to corrupt public morals.
