Woman in trouble after sharing her hot nude pictures with a friend on WhatsApp


A WOMAN from Bulawayo’s Mpopoma suburb who shared her nud_e pictures with a friend has been sentenced together with three other accomplices for sharing raunchy pictures in a residents’ WhatsApp group.

A court heard that Linah Ncube (33) shared her nud_e pictures with Mpumelelo Nyoni (30) from the same suburb.

It is alleged Nyoni further shared the nud_es with Viola Chamboko (29) and Sharon who leaked the pictures. Prosecutor Patson Muchingami told the court that the crime was committed between April last year and June this year when the quartet was arrested.

The court heard Ncube discovered that her nud_e pictures were being circulated after bumping into them on a Mpopoma WhatsApp group.

She then reported the matter to the police who deployed the cyber crack team comprising police Victim Friendly Unit to investigate the matter.

The court heard investigations led to the arrest of Ncube and that of the three accomplices as it was established that she intentionally sent the pictures to Nyoni.

The prosecutor said while the other three had violated Ncube’s privacy, she was also liable for circulating the nud_e pictures.

“The three accused persons worked in cahoots and circulated pictures bearing nud_e photos of the complainant on WhatsApp platforms. They did this in full realisation that there was a real risk or possibility that their conduct would seriously impair the dignity of the complainant.

The trio was also found in possession of five nud_e pictures belonging to the complainant on their phones which is indecent or obscene or prohibited,” he said.

He said police investigations also led to Ncube’s arrest.

Linah was fined $500 and paid it and the trio of Mpumelelo, Sheron and Viola were fined $1 000 which they are supposed to have paid by 27 July or spend 60 days in prison.
