Senegal’s Touba TV blames ‘satanic trick’ for porn gaffe

A religious TV channel in Senegal has blamed an unidentified saboteur for the “satanic trick” that led to a hardcore porn film being shown on air.

Touba TV’s viewers were shocked when explicit sexual content appeared on their screens between 13:10 and 13:30 local time on Monday.

The privately run TV station had initially said that a troublesome “network bug” had led to the blunder.

Touba TV is run by Senegal’s influential Mouride Islamic sect.

The channel has laid a complaint with the authorities to identify the culprits.

The pornographic material ran during a popular programme, Tarixu Juma for about 15 minutes.

“As a religious channel, the management of Touba TV and all our audience members are outraged and unreservedly condemn this criminal act which seems to be sabotage and a satanic trick designed to undermine a channel which is known to stand for Islamic values and teachings,” Touba TV management said in a statement.

The channel broadcasts religious programmes promoting Islamic values and teachings.

It is not clear how the perpetrators accessed the station’s network.

Touba is the holy city of the Mouride sect, which wields considerable political and economic power in Senegal.

Another missionary shot dead in Cameroon clash within a Month

Published

A missionary, Fr Cosmas Omboto Ondari has been shot dead in Cameroon during the second killing of its kind in less than one month.



Fr Ondari was reported standing outside his church in the South West region on Wednesday when he came under fire.

In a statement released on Facebook, local Catholic leaders described the shooting as a “heinous crime”. They said government forces were to blame.

The Diocese of Mamfe said: “While we mourn with the Mill Hill family and the national family of Fr Ondari, we trust that he died doing what he has offered his life for.

“He was serving humanity far away from home and family, but he was one with the people of Kembong who loved him so well and whom he loved so much.”

Media reports suggest Fr Ondari – who belonged to the Mill Hill Missionaries – may have been caught in cross-fire between soldiers and armed separatists.

The 33-year-old Kenyan national had been serving as an assistant parish priest at St Martin of Tours in the village of Kembong.

Last month, it was reported how an American missionary working in Cameroon was shot in the head and killed in front of his family.

Fighting between English-speaking separatists and government forces in Cameroon’s South West and North West regions has intensified since 2016. Hundreds of civilians have died.

Having long-claimed discrimination under a national political system dominated by French-speakers, separatists want Anglophone areas to become an independent nation – Ambazonia.

Hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced by the violence.
