Jalang’o has responded to leaked screenshots by Edgar Obary and it has caused Outrage. The Popular radio presenter Jalang’o found himself in the eye of a storm on Monday, May 18 after blogger Edgar Obare published several screenshots, allegedly from a Whatsapp group with the presenter as one of its members.
After Obare released details of the group, the next morning saw Jalang’o and Obare feature among the biggest topics of discussion on social media platforms in the country.
The controversy stemmed from the screenshots which alleged that Jalang’o and his close friends have a group where they share images of various women, further ranking themselves based on their romantic conquests.
According to Kenyans.co.ke, who reached to the presenter to get his side of the story, Jalangó stated that it was intentional the blogger is doing so to spoil his name.
“There’s no problem. Let him (Edgar Obare) keep doing what he is doing,” he stated, with the blogger having previously clashed with the presenter.
Jalang’o has previously stated that there was a hidden hand behind Obare’s pieces which were aimed at tarnishing his name and reputation.
Obare claimed in February 2020 that he feared for his life after receiving threatening calls from the presenter following an earlier exposé.
Obare, who sources his information from his numerous followers, had published a story alleging that Jalang’o, a married man, was engaged in affairs with a string of women.
The presenter, however, dismissed the claims as he maintained that he was focused on his work and family, insisting that the allegations would not blur his focus.
“A blogger wakes up and posts that I called him and threatened him? That he meets me at DCI? I just laugh! From his screenshots, there is someone working really hard to try and tarnish my name.
“I will not even bother asking or following who you are who talks to bloggers and lies to them about me, just malice! pure malice!
“I have a lot on my plate to even bother with you and if you are honest about being threatened you don’t post, you report,” he responded at the time.
Jalango Has also mentioned that him missing his show today on Radio, has nothing to do with the happening.
