A man who released a now viral video of Lamu Senator Anwar Loitiptip smoking shisha in the company of a woman identified as Aeedah Bambi has pleaded guilty to charges against him.

Jones Ochieng Mbolo, who appeared before a Nairobi court on Wednesday, said he took the video because shisha smoking is illegal in the country hence he felt the Senator should be a role model to Kenyans.

Mbolo, according to court papers, was charged with attempting to extort money from the woman in the video, Aeedah ‘Bambi’ Pesian Ahmed.

The court heard that he allegedly threatened Aeedah that he would expose on social media platforms the video taken of her contravening the law by smoking shisha.

The case, in which Senator Loitiptip is listed as one of the witnesses, was mentioned before Chief Magistrate Martha Mutuku.

The court set March 3, 2021 as the date for sentencing.
