FPB employees fired for stealing porn

The Film and Publication Board (FPB) has dismissed two employees after they tried to steal an unclassified pornographic movie, the organisation said on Tuesday.

“Their case was finalised in August, and they were dismissed at the beginning of this month for trying to steal a copy of the film,” spokesman Sipho Risiba said.

The two, Thomas Nndwa and Roger Moshapo, were caught on a CCTV camera trying to steal a copy of the Venda pornographic movie “Bush Pie 3”. The film is yet to be released to the public by the FPB.

Risiba could not comment on whether the process to classify the film was completed and when it would be released to the public.

“I do not have information regarding that as I am currently not in the office,” he said.

Risiba referred queries to an FPB legal officer, a Mr Kekana. He refused to comment about the film or the two employees’ case. He said he was not the organisation’s spokesman and therefore Risiba should comment further or ask him to comment in writing.

The Venda pornographic film, produced by Zwoluga Madega, reportedly drew criticism this year from religious leaders and the Venda community.

The film was shot in Manyuwa, Venda, with the cast wearing traditional Venda attire.
