I woke up this morning not knowing Anita’s bedroom pictures would be trending on social media. I saw negative comments on one of our page posts which prompted me to check what was happening in our WhatsApp group. I found some people talking about the whole issue and immediately got in touch with Anita for an explanation.
Anita explained to me that she took the videos and pictures a while ago, before she left Kabwe. She had them on her phone but never sent them to anyone until this morning when she got shocked seeing them circulating on social media. She also explained that the night she went out clubbing in Lusaka, she lost her phone and never recovered it. The person who picked the phone is the one who leaked Anita’s private videos and pictures, and not herself.
Anita has already reported the case to the police and they have instituted an investigation into the matter.
