Popular Kenyan blogger Edgar Obare has broken his silence after his Instagram account was deactivated days after the wash-wash exposè.

Using his other account @BNNke, Obare said he was well aware that would happen and assured his fans he is working towards recovering his official page.

”My main account has been deactivated, working to get it restored. Meanwhile, we already prepared for these outcomes and I can also be posting here,” he wrote.

Most netizens raised concerns over his whereabouts in the wake of his missing Instagram account throwing Twitter in a heated debate.

Although there were a few who dismissed it as a clout chasing stunt, the general consensus was alarmed by the sudden disappearance of Obare’s main page and his well being.

Last week, Obare in a thread of Insta-stories exposed the wash-wash business and a group of flamboyant businessmen believed to be part of the money fraudulent business.

The exposè immediately went viral and the ‘tea master’ had the internet eating out the palm of her hand for the better part of the weekend.

He linked several personalities with the dirty business with some coming out to deny and distance themselves from the allegations.

It is not clear who deactivated the account, a move that happens two days after he shared an expose of an alleged multi-million money laundering business in Kenya involving gold and fake money.

He claimed the business, which is referred to as wash wash, involves prominent politicians, immigration officials, media personalities, police officers, flamboyant businessmen, and bank officials.

Obare further claimed the well-connected members of this syndicate live on the fast lane and parade their lavish lifestyles on social media.

Obare has made a name for such exposes.

In May of 2021, he released an expose on media personality Felix Odiwuor aka Jalang’o, and his ‘Boys Club’, whom he claimed consistently cheated on their partners via sexual orgies. Jalang’o has denied the claim.

He has also been charged at Kiambu Law court with exposure of personal information.

The complainant was popular You Tuber Natalie Tewa whose real name is Natalie Wanjiru Githinji.

Obare had early on shared Tewa’s visa information on Instagram in a bid to provide his audience with evidence to back his claim the YouTuber had indeed traveled to Dubai alongside Mombasa Governor Hassan Ali Joho.

The story sparked controversy as everyone tried to unearth the owner of a mysterious handbag from a photo that went viral of Joho and Suna East Mp Junet Mohamed who had traveled to Dubai on a private jet to see ODM leader Raila Odinga who had undergone a corrective nerve surgery.
