Kahawa Tungu has however learnt of details that led to the arrest of Obare. A week earlier, Obare had done an expose’ where a lady claimed to have been impregnated by Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua.

In screenshots that went viral, the lady in question shared details of the conversation with the governor, the governor’s driver and their meetings.

For instance, the lady after claiming she was pregnant with the governor’s child, went ahead and requested Sh250,000 to get an abortion. When the Governor failed to respond, she opted to expose him.

It was then that Obare messaged the governor to get his side of the story. Governor Mutua refuted the claims and saying that it was a case of extortion as he was not the one recorded on the voice messages that were shared.
