A second video selfie of him and tourist has emerged in which they say they were joking in the original one.
He was arrested last week for casting the tourism ministry in a "bad light", police said.

SA paedophile given 32 life sentences

A South African court has sentenced a convicted paedophile to 32 life sentences.
Car salesman Warren Troy Knoop will also spend 170 years behind bars after being convicted of 870 charges of rape and possession of child abuse images.
Knoop was caught when US authorities found him sharing dozens of videos on a website commonly frequented by paedophiles.
Laptops, hard drives, memory cards, mobile phones, a spy camera and many other electronic items were seized during a raid in his house east of Johannesburg.
The anti-abuse lobby group Women and Men Against Child Abuse said Knoop tried to distribute images internationally.
One of his victims was a child born in 2011.
Prosecutor Riana Williams said the child was just one year old when Knoop began to molest her.
“I can’t take back everything I have done to all those people,” Knoop told the court on Friday.
"I need help. This has been a cry for help and from here on, I can make a difference. It hurts me, but I deserve this. I need help," he added.

At least 12 houses were torched during a weekend of violence in Rosettenville in Johannesburg, with locals saying that the properties were being used as drug dens and brothels. 
Many of the burned houses were occupied by foreigners. 
Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba has been condemned for making comments in the past linking crime to illegal immigrants. He denies inciting anyone to violence. 
His Twitter account has retweeted an appeal sent on Sunday by a resident of another neighbourhood who said "these foreigners don't have respect for South Africa". 
Mr Mashaba joined police raids on suspected brothels in Rosettenville last Wednesday.
A government delegation is expected in the area on Monday afternoon, including Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba.

Somaliland agrees to host UAE military base

The parliament for Somalia's breakaway northern territory of Somaliland has passed an agreement that allows the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to establish a military base in its territory. 
The Emirati government submitted a formal application in January seeking permission from the Somaliland government to open a military base in the port town of Berbera. 
Somaliland is not officially recognised as an independent country and this agreement may put it at loggerheads with Somalia’s federal government, which has just elected a new president.  
Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed - known by the nickname Farmajo - was chosen last week. He is a technocrat and a former prime minister who served just eight months in office.
