Bare photos of Rosemary Ogutu hit the internet with the explanation being that she accidentally leaked the photos on a WhatsApp group. The county lawmaker has since explained the origin of her nude photos.
Cases of people being blackmailed with their raunchy photos have been on the rise; just a few days ago, a Ugandan lady went into hiding after her Kenyan sponsor leaked her naked photos online.
Rosemary Ogutu’s nudes were posted on ‘Siaya County Forum’ WhatsApp group, where she is the administrator.
The MCA has however denied claims that she accidentally posted her nude photos on the WhatsApp group.
She claims that her phone was hacked and someone posted photoshopped pictures of her in her birthday suit.
“I want to say these pictures are seemingly photoshoped and are directed at character assassination, but I want to believe that my political opponents are behind it.” Rosemary Ogutu said while addressing the press at Siaya County assembly.
The raunchy photo shows the MCA seated on a bed while cuddling her breasts and smiling. The nude photos however doesn’t seem to be photoshopped as claimed by the Siaya MCA.
Rosemary suspects her political opponents were behind her leaked birthday suit photos; she claims that move was aimed to deter her ambitions for vying for Alego-Usonga parliamentary seat in 2017.
“I want to say the direction these people have taken with my private life will not deter me from the journey I have taken in Alego Usonga. I am sorry for my family, my supporters, Siaya County Assembly and my party. We are in a political season and if this is what is going to happen to the women of Kenya and Siaya County then I stand to condemn it. When it comes to the private life of a woman, we are always weak emotionally.”
