Twitter was asked to take down Zanele Sifuba’s SEX video.

The explicit video starring African National Committee (ANC) Free State member Zanele Sifuba was removed after a formal request, according to the South African Film and Publishing Board (FPB), but Twitter has not yet responded.According to the FPB, the video explicitly depicts excessive nudity.

“The open distribution of the content on a publicly accessible network like Twitter further exposes children to material that is not appropriate for their age and is in violation of the Act.”

Twitter has not yet replied

Dr. Mashilo Boloka, the FPB’s acting CEO, said they are awaiting Twitter’s reaction.

Twitter has not yet reacted to our letter, but we are optimistic that they will once they receive it. However, from what I can tell, and from some of the response we have received from the public, the quantity is no longer as obvious as it once was.

“I hope they took action after getting our letter. It would be bad if they delayed dealing with the changes due to the debates or circumstances that are currently occurring on Twitter, Boloka remarked.


Twitter has until Thursday to reply to the letter; else, the matter would be submitted to the nation’s law enforcement organisations.

According to the FPB, “Because of the risk the material or clip poses to kids of age-inappropriate material, Twitter has been contacted to urgent attention take-down the video from its channel by the 10th of November 2022. Failure to do so will result in the FPB applying the remedies supplied to it by the Act, such as taking recourse to the recently appointed Policing Committee, presided by Retired Judge Thokozile Masipa for fines and or fines,” the agency said.

People are advised not to distribute videos

The FPB encouraged the public to refrain from sharing, reposting, or distributing the sex video or the photographs, saying that doing so would also be against the FP Act.

“Anyone who knowingly divides private sexual photographs or films in any medium, including the rise of social media, without the prior consent of the individual or persons and where the participant or individuals in the photographs or films is identified or recognisable in the said photographs or films, shall be guilty of an offence.


“Following investigation, violators will be subject to a punishment not to exceed R300 000, or to imprisonment for a term not to exceed four years, or to both a fine and such imprisonment,” states the law. The FPB further said

Following the publication of an explicit sexual video of her praising herself while on a video call with an unidentified man on social media, Sifuba stated on Wednesday that she has filed a legal lawsuit.
