Cape Town - Angry Cape Town residents are hunting for a man who allegedly posted nude pictures of his lover on Facebook.

The unidentified man uploaded eight pictures of the woman on the popular social network site before disappearing.

One of the pictures, which is in the possession of the Daily Voice, depicts the mother of one sitting on a bed with her legs spread open.

The images have reportedly circulated around the country, sparking outrage amongst members of the community.

On Saturday, Nyanga residents marched through the streets searching for the woman’s lover but he had fled his home.

The woman says she got a call last week from a friend alerting her that nude photographs of her had been posted on Facebook.

“The community has been very supportive and these are people who know the kind of person I am,” she says.

“I am dealing with it, I’m not cowering away from it or hiding in the house like most people thought I would.

“I have since written a response and posted it on Facebook about those pictures.

“My five-year-old child is too young to be affected by it and I’m not letting it rule my life.” - Daily Voice
