was leaked online, reports 2OceansVibe
A spokesperson for the Film and Publication Board Mlimandlela Ndamase confirmed on Tuesday that the police will be involved in the investigation.
In a tweet posted by Mbau
on Sunday she claims that her ex-boyfriend Theunis Crous is behind the privacy violation and that the pictures were leaked in order to "destroy" her.
She wrote: "I would like @theuniscrous's Obsession with me end already, we dated yes, and had a bad end.. But ur mission to try and destroy me. (sic)"
Crous and his wife released a statement to the media
in which they deny playing any role in the leaked pictures: "We are extremely disapproving of the distasteful pictures that have now been made public…."
'We do not condone or appreciate the actions of the person or persons who have posted these pictures on the social networks and in addition make no assumption as to who is responsible."
