Former Machachari TV series actor Tyler Mbaya, famously known as Baha, will take legal action against the individual who leaked a nude video of his baby mama, Georgina Njenga, to the internet.
Speaking to Milele FM presenter Ankali Ray on Saturday, January 7, Baha disclosed that they were preparing a legal case against the individual, whom he did not disclose and who is yet to be identified.
He also did not divulge further details of their plans but would update the public on any developments in the future.

“Plans are underway…we are going to take action. We will take legal action.
“For now I cannot give details, maybe in the near future we will. Legal action will be taken,” he said.
On the state of Njenga following the leaked clip, Baha assured his fans that she was doing well and that the love between the two remains strong.
He added that he will still love her until the end of time and that the troubles they went through following the clip have not affected what they feel towards each other.
“Georgina is doing okay, I’m with her. The love is still there…it cannot be shaken.
“For now, she’s not in a position to talk to anyone…our love cannot be disintegrated nor shaken, it’s not an issue here…till death do us part,” he added.
The clip was leaked on Telegram and captured her dancing naked while inside a room.
While responding to blogger Edgar Obare who sought clarity on the same, Njenga exposed a man who was studying at Kenyatta University (KU) who seemed not to be happy about her relationship with the actor who is also a content creator.
"It happened when I was 17 with someone I liked. He was a guy in KU university's Ruiru campus. Reasons for leaking I don't know," she said.
She added that the incident happened in 2020 and the man began threatening her immediately after she went public regarding her relationship with Baha, despite her not dating him.
When questioned why the man would be upset about her relationship with Baha, Njenga answered "Because it was a win in my life and he had something against me".
Obare then sought to know whether she reported the matter to the authorities and raise it with Baha, to which she responded by confirming that he was aware.
Oxford dictionary defines revenge porn as posting revealing or sexually explicit images or videos of a person on the Internet, typically by a former sexual partner, without the consent of the subject and in order to cause them distress or embarrassment.
While there are no specific laws set aside to deal with revenge porn in the country, there are several provisions of the law that may be applied, case in focus is the Computer Misuse and Cybercrime Act of 2018.
The Act makes it a punishable offence to post nude images on the Internet without the consent of the owner with an intent to cause emotional distress. The images are sometimes accompanied by personal information about the subject, including their full name, address and links to their social media profiles.
The Act under section 37 which creates the offence provides to wit; "A person who transfers, publishes, or disseminates, including making a digital depiction available for distribution or downloading through a telecommunications network or through any other means of transferring data to a computer, the intimate or obscene image of another person commits an offence and is liable, on conviction to a fine not exceeding two hundred thousand shillings or imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years or both."
