A nominated Member of County Assembly in Vihiga has reportedly gone into hiding after posting shameful photos on the county’s development Whatsapp group.

The incident happened at 9:12 pm on Friday.

Ms Rhoda Omufumu has not been seen since, and it is believed that shame has drove her into hiding. It is unclear who was the intended recipient of the nudes.

An officer at Vihiga county assembly has however come to her defense, saying the female politician could not possibly have been the one who sent the pics, as she is mostly illiterate on matters technology.

“Mtu alichezea simu yake. She is a church leader who cannot post such things on social media. She is married and she has grown up children,” the Star quotes the officer.

After the image went up, suspended county assembly speaker Dan Chitwa asked Omufumu to “undo” the post, saying “itakuletea njaa“.

Another nominated MCA, Maureen Ambasa, asked her female counterparts to meet on Monday and form a committee to look into the matter.
