Mombasa woman accused of sharing child’s nudes with foreigner

A woman accused of child pornography and online child abuse has retracted her plea of guilty, denying allegations of exposing her child on social media for sexual exploitation.

The woman allegedly posted nude photos of her 10-year-old child on a social media platform with the intention of profiting from the illegal act.

According to the charge sheet, she used the social media site MeetMe to subject the minor to online abuse by sharing their nude photos with a person using the username Zohair Al Mukaram.

The court heard that this action implied that Mukaram would sexually exploit both the minor and the suspect.

In the second count, the suspect is accused of child pornography, where the state claims she intentionally and unlawfully possessed explicit images of the minor on her mobile phone.

The court heard that the suspect committed these offences on various dates between July and October 15 in an unknown location within Changamwe sub-county.

On Tuesday, the woman had initially pleaded guilty to the charges but later changed her plea, stating that she did not understand the charges and requested them to be read to her again.

Her lawyer, Chris Egesa, requested the court to grant his client reasonable bond terms, emphasising that she was responsible for caring for another young child.

The prosecution did not object to the suspect’s request for bond.

Police investigators claimed that the woman met the foreigner on the dating site MeetMe, where they chatted and exchanged photos.

The suspect shared beach photos of herself and her child with the foreigner.

“The foreigner developed an interest in the minor and informed the mother that he would recruit her for his modelling agency, promising to train her to be a model,” the police said.

The foreigner then requested the woman to share nude photos of her daughter, sending her explicit photos of white children as well.

“That is when the suspect began taking nude photos of her children and sharing them with the foreigner,” the police said.

The court heard that the suspect sent several nude photos to the foreigner until she was exposed by local and international law enforcement agencies dealing with human trafficking and child exploitation.

The Anti-Human Trafficking Police officers tracked down the suspect in the Mikindani area, where they raided her house and arrested her.

During the raid, the investigators seized mobile phones and other items, which were subjected to forensic analysis, resulting in the recovery of the nude images.

However, the suspect was released on a bail of Sh200,000 with one surety of the same amount.

The case will be mentioned on October 31.
