Kenya governor, Prof Anyang Nyong’o, who is the father of Hollywood actress Lupita Nyong’o, has complained about a lady sending him her unclad pictures.
He disclosed that the unknown woman would send him unclad pictures and raunchy messages, especially at night, via WhatsApp.
“I never gave her my number. I even don’t know who she is, yet she kept tormenting me at night with love messages,” Nyong’o complained.
When it became unbearable, the governor reported the number to the police. “I blocked her number, but after a few months, she resurfaced with her rude and nude pictures and romantic messages,’’ he explained.
“However, the police never got back to me on their findings, so I don’t know if they inherited her,’’ he quipped with a chuckle while addressing Journalists in Kisumu.
The Kisumu governor advised social media users to be cautious with their usage.
“I wonder if some people sleep. It is midnight and when you open your phone, you hear pop-up messages all over WhatsApp,’’ he said.
“We need to use the devices responsibly in a humane manner. We need to share good ideas and not only assaults or sexual explorations,” advised the governor
Anyang Nyong’o is not the first politician to be affected by such. Early this year, several Members of Parliament revealed that they received several pictures of sexy girls in their phones.
They were sent by women who wanted an intimate relationship with them.
Minority Whip Junet Mohammed said the criminals had found their phone numbers and were using them to send naked pictures. “Yes, some are so shocking and I keep on deleting. I wonder who that woman is, but she is crazy. Some of them you may not even stand watching them with naked eyes, as they show parts of human anatomy that are disturbing,” he said.
Kiminini MP Chris Wamalwa also shared his experience stating that he was once afraid to use his phone in front of his family.
“Just recently, the same lady sent me something and I tried to open it. The sounds that came out of it made it difficult to speak in my house. This matter is breaking families,” said Wamalwa.
