The reason for this was that Edgar had linked a famous female influencer to Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho. The “tea master” as he famously goes among his fans will be arraigned today to face the charges for linking the famous female influencer to a Dubai trip that Joho and Suna East MP Junet Mohamed had taken to visit ODM leader Raila Odinga.

Joho and Junet shared a photo while on the fancy jet that immediately went viral for a bag that was placed just under a table.

The brown bag started trending immediately with many Kenyans first linking Betty Kyallo to the bag but she immediately came out to refute the claims.

But that didn’t stop enterprising Kenyans from finding information that another famous female YouTube and Instagram had also been in Dubai coincidentally at the same time that Joho had been there.

Junet, however, went on social media quashing the rumours by sharing a photo of the whole crew which revealed the owner of the ‘famous’ leather bag to be one of the cabin crew but the damage had already been done.
