Naked photos of Rwandan female presidential candidate, Diane Shima Rwigara, has been leaked by an unknown person online.
35-year-old Rwigara was on Friday morning shocked to learn about her private [email protected] photographs making the rounds on the internet.
The move to humiliate the woman, who recently boldly came out to attack President Paul Kagame of bad governance, is likely to attract criticism from women rights activists.
Tough talking Rwigara is the daughter of the late Assinapol Rwigara, who died in a motor accident in 2015.
It is hardly a week since she announced her presidential ambitions when these photos suddenly emerged online.
We gathered that in the very conservative Rwandan society, Rwigara is likely to get shunned by moralists, while the youth might warm up to her candidature but for only excitement.
However, analysts ask, “who will take seriously a woman who finds idle time to take n3de photos?”
N3des are not new in Rwanda, but no high profile woman has been rudely exposed to this extent. This has been a territory for musicians, socialites and corporate pr0stitutes.
How Rwigara will respond to this photo bomb will tell a lot about the substance she is made of.
For now, an innocent act such as this is a little set back to the fire she had infused into her campaign.
