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.
