Popular Kenyan gossip blogger Edgar Obare is set to be arraigned in court for linking YouTube personality Natalie ‘Tewa’ Wanjiru to Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho.
Obare, who is also YouTuber, is accused of unlawfully publishing private and personal information about Natalie.
Obare claimed that Natalie accompanied Governor Joho on a trip to Dubai, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) three weeks ago.
Joho and Suna East MP Junet Mohamed traveled to Dubai aboard a chartered private jet on July 9th to visit ODM leader Raila Odinga, who underwent surgery at a German hospital in the UAE capital.
Obare, who has become an internet sensation for ‘exposing’ various Kenyan celebrities, was arrested in Kisumu on Friday by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).
Through his Instagram channel on Saturday, the blogger said he was being detained at Gigiri police station pending questioning.
“Am in Gigiri police station still awaiting interrogation thank you so much for the supporting messages,” he told his 207,000 Instagram followers.
