MCA’s nude photos unleashed on social media

A Member of County Assembly has become the latest victim of public shaming after his nude photos surfaced on social media.

Kimilili MCA David Barasa’s nudes started trending online on Wednesday when a blog shared them in a story.

The photos were then picked up by users on Facebook and became a subject of ridicule for the Juakali Band lead singer turned MCA.

Users castigated the elected leader for openly displaying his manhood for the camera.

Mr Barasa has since claimed that the images were manipulated on Photoshop to tarnish his image.

“The photo you are sharing out there is not mine but it has been computer generated to tarnish my name. My rivals should employ better tactics rather than doing this to me. I’m a family man and a respected leader,” he said in a statement quoted by The Standard newspaper.

The MCA added that he knows there is a lady close to him who has been given money to malign him.

“I know the lady distributing the photos and I have met her one’s or twice during our intimate relationships. She is being used after she was promised the good amount of money,” he added.

The incident has left many flabbergasted, prompting a status update by a user on Facebook who also goes by the name David Barasa.

He posted;“And the people who think I am David Barasa of Webuye Jua Kali band (also the nude MCA), GERRR OUT OF HERE!”

MCA Barasa triumphed in the 2013 election to win the Kimilili town County Ward representative seat with 2,213, beating his close rival Mwanahamisi Kombo of Ford Kenya who garnered 1,603 votes.
