• Article 31 of the Constitution of Kenya makes it an offense to distribute indecent images of someone without permission.
• It is an offense that can result in a fine not exceeding two lakhs or imprisonment for two years or both.
CAS in the ministry of internal security, Millicent Omanga, has broken her silence after what is believed to be her intimate video was circulated on social media.
Through her Facebook page, Omanga quoted the Bible where God tells his worshipers that he has given them strength and nothing will hurt them.
"Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you. Luke 10:19. Blessed day peeps," Omanga wrote.
However, it is not clear if it is true that the video that is being circulated showing her in a bed is of her or someone with bad intentions decided to edit her image on a different person's image.
Since Monday night, Omanga has been the talk of all social networks just because of the video that some claim is her.
Some of her fans are protesting strongly that there was a secret plot to destroy the name of the politician.
Fans on Facebook instantly flooded her comments section less than a few minutes after uploading the Bible passage asking her to be strong and not be threatened by anyone.
"Amen, I like encouragement in you, keep standing strong," one told her. "A good leader unites the people, thank you for uniting us," one joked, referring to the video.
Omanga has not spoken about whether she take any legal action if it is indeed was her video that was leaked.
In Kenya, by law, it is a crime for someone to leak another person's digital information online and it is a law passed in 2018 by the retired president Uhuru Kenyatta.
The law under section 31 of the constitution of Kenya which constitutes an offense states;
'A person who transfers, publishes, or transmits, including making a digital image available for distribution or download via a telecommunications network or by any other means of computer data transfer, an intimate or obscene image of another person commits offense and will be held legally responsible, if convicted by paying a fine not exceeding two hundred thousand shillings or imprisonment not exceeding two years or both.'
