Following the Thursday arrest of video editor attached to a local Kenyan news website in the ongoing probe into the unverified sex video involving Wajir Women Rep, more details have since emerged on the events that eventually led to the arrest.
According to a police source that sought anonymity, the first suspect by the name Douglas Baya was arrested on Thursday evening after being tracked to Kakamega county.
Further reports indicate that the Tuko video editor allegedly received Ksh 2 Million to create the fake pornographic video recording.
"The suspect was tracked to Kakamega County. He is the main person of interest so far and he's said to have been paid 2 million in cash to edit the video that explicitly exposes Wajir female politician. Investigations are on advanced stages and more individuals are expected to be arrested," revealed the source privy to the sex tape probe.
For the better part of last week, the video that explicitly exposes Wajir's Fatuma Gedi made rounds in Social media with users sharing and commenting, a thing that saw it go viral even beyond the Kenyan borders.
Gedi's case is not the first incident of public figures being explicitly exposed in sex video clips.
Barely two months ago, another leaked video allegedly of politician Nasri Abdi Omar found its way online, a thing that compelled the politician to seek a court injunction to counter further circulation in social media.
