Fafi MP Denies Involvement in a Sex Scandal Tape
A day after media news of his summon by the DCI, Fafi member of Parliament Abdikarim Osman is purporting to spill the beans as he denies involvement in a scandalous sex tape circulated on social media allegedly showing Wajir Women Rep in a sexual act. The Fafi legislature said his only act of involvement in the sex video was passing it to the Women Rep after she requested it from Djibouti where she was at the time on an official visit. In a Facebook post in response to the DCI summon the mp had this to say
“The news story carried in the local TV channels about the DCI seeking me along with 3 other MPs for questioning for allegedly ‘defaming’ Wajir County Women MP Hon. Fatuma Gedi regarding an obscene video that had been going round the social media sites, has come to me as a surprising and laughable bit of news
I categorically state that I have not in any way maligned, defamed nor has the thought of doing any of that to my sister Hon. Fatuma occurred to me.
Why would someone sustain this very negative episode in the media?
What interest would I even remotely have in defaming her? I am a politician, so what political interest would I have in doing so? I don’t come from Wajir County, Hon. Fatuma can’t influence voters in my constituency and neither can I influence hers. Incidentally, 2 of the 3 other MPs the DCI is seeking also don’t come from Wajir County.
On this, mimi ni mweupe kama pamba and my unsolicited advice to my sister is not to create imaginary enemies.
If anything, while in Djibouti, my sister Hon. Fatuma Gedi asked me to send her the clip, which I did. Does that make me culpable of anything? Hasn’t she asked for what was then largely in the public domain? Haven’t I only acceded to her request?
I have not received any official communication from DCI nor from the Clerk of the National Assembly, so far the matter still remains a sensational story aired in the TV news but I won’t hesitate sharing with DCI the communication between me and Hon. Fatuma while we were in Djibouti.
Let’s see how this ends.”
The DCI has summoned 4 legislators over the tape after they were allegedly mentioned by people the DCI has spoken to. A blogger arrested after the video appeared on social media was released for lack of evidence linking him to the production of the video. The video, a 6 minute long sex act claimed that the people in the act were the Wajir Women Rep and a male partner whosr face was hidden. The Wajir Women Rep sought the intervention of the courts to stop people she alleges were defaming her character. The case is still in court and no one has so far been charged.
