Obare, who is also known as the tea master, was arrested on Thursday, July 30 after being summoned by officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI).
He was later taken to Gigiri Police Station where attempts by his laywers to have him released on bail bore no fruit. According to sources, a senior political figure kept blocking his release.
Obare is being accused by Natalie Wanjiru Githinji, alias Natalie Tewa, of disclosing her personal information. However, he denied the charges.
The blogger had earlier hinted that Natalie had accompanied Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho to Dubai and that the two were seeing each other but had decided to keep their relationship tightly under wraps.
A few days ago, Obare shared a photo of an Audi A3 that was allegedly gifted to Natalie by Joho. However, she denied the claims and many believe it is what pushed her to report the former.
