The Swaziland Action Group Against Abuse (SWAGAA) has joined the growing chorus of condemnation of the Times Sunday newspaper after it published a nude picture of a woman blackmail victim.

The woman's former boyfriend had published naked pictures of her on social network sites and had sent them to her work colleagues and others who knew her. This was after their relationship broke down and the couple argued over money.

The Times Sunday interviewed the Zimbabwean man at length and published his story and included one of the pictures he was circulating. It blurred out the woman's face, breasts and private parts, but published a second picture of her in which she could be clearly identified (despite a small black strip printed across her eyes) and gave enough details of her workplace to make identification easy.
