On Sunday, September 6, Edgar while speaking in a video posted on his blog’s Instagram page claimed that the said persons kidnapped and tortured his brother in a bid to have him divulge information about his whereabouts.
“Saturday night I was informed that they kidnapped my brother. They kidnapped him, tortured him and were more or less trying to get information about my whereabouts. I am so sad that he had to go through that and that some people in this country would go so low that they are now going after my family,” he said.
Soon after his video surfaced on the internet, Lynn Ngugi took to social media and in an Instagram post shared her views insisting they were her personal opinions.
“While it would be considered by many safe to remain silent matters Edgar Obare, I chose not to especially given his brother’s kidnapping. Edgar is not everyone’s cup of tea but whether the issues affecting this country are aired first by him or not, it will not stop Kenyans from finding out the truth eventually.
Today it’s him, tomorrow, any of us with different views will be next., and though we may not always agree with his approach towards personal matters, I believe torturing his brother is not the solution. Ps, these are my views and this post will not be deleted,” she wrote.
Earlier today, Amira on her insta-stories uploaded Edgar’s photo with a hashtag istandwithedgar and went on to speak on her decision and engage her followers on the same.
Amira who has been on the receiving end with the blogger stated that Obare will be on the right side of history and she does not agree with what is happening to him.
“I have been on the receiving end of Edgar’s stories, but I don’t agree with what is happening to him. What is right is right and what is wrong is wrong. We can’t be a country of hypocrisy. He is Kenya’s TMZ and I believe he will be on the right side of history,” she wrote.
