A man who seduced a Facebook friend and took her to his house, where they recorded videos of their “sexcapades” before he put them on sale to potential customers online, was charged with wrongful distribution of obscene and intimate images.

Daniel Orina is accused of publishing and disseminating obscene and intimate images of the woman on his Facebook account on August 29 and 30 in South B, Nairobi, jointly with others at large, contrary to section 37 of the Computer Misuse and Cybercrime Act of 2018.

Mr Orina sent a friend request to the woman after he saw her on Facebook earlier this year.
He then hit her inbox and seduced her, and they fell in love.

The complainant left her uncle’s house in Kangemi to visit Mr Orina at his house in South C estate where they ate the forbidden fruit in the last week of June, and he escorted her back to Nairobi CBD where she took a matatu back home.

Three weeks later, the woman visited the suspect again at his house, where they enjoyed the forbidden fruit again and agreed to take pictures and videos of their amorous activities in bed.

After the intercourse was recorded on video and pictures, Mr Orina transferred the pictures from the complainant’s phone which they had used and escorted her again to the CBD where she took a matatu to her uncle’s house, and he returned to his house.

In mid-August, the woman returned to Mr Orina’s house with the intention of deleting the videos and pictures from the suspect’s mobile phone.

They stayed together for four days and the complainant left the suspect’s house back to Kangemi then blocked him on social media.

After a week, she received a call from a friend who was asking her why she was posting videos and pictures of herself while naked on her timeline.

Mr Orina had allegedly hacked into the account, changed the name and posted that those interested in the videos should drop their WhatsApp numbers to receive the videos for Sh20 only.

The suspect had allegedly shared the video with one of the complainant’s friends, who is now listed as the star witness in the case.

The woman later reported the matter at the Pangani police station on September 2, and the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) took up investigations.

The suspect was traced and arrested. The DCI recovered screenshots of the videos and pictures that Mr Orina had allegedly posted on the account, and they are listed as exhibits in the case.

Mr Orina denied the charges before Senior Principal Magistrate Agnes Mwangi of the Makadara Law Courts.

He was released on a bond of Sh200,000 without an option of a cash bail.

The case will be mentioned on November 17 before the hearing starts on April 4th, next year.

The account has since been suspended, and it is also listed as an exhibit in the case.
