Kenyans-DCI should have gone for a Bigger fish than Edgar Obare

Was the Directorate of Criminal Investigations aiming  lower than it should ? Is there is a serious offense or a less serious offense? Are they all crimes and culprits should be charged? Blogger and YouTuber Edgar Obare was arrested by DCI sleuths from his Kisumu home on Thursday and is at Gigiri Police Station awaiting interrogation.

Reports indicated that his arrest was over a social media post about Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho and YouTuber Natalie “Tewa” Wanjiru.


.In an Instagram post, the blogger with a more than 200,000 following, thanked his followers for the messages of support.

“Am in Gigiri police station still awaiting interrogation thank you so much for the supporting messages (sic),” he wrote.

As usual, most Kenyans took to social media to express their opinions .Some think that Obare is a small fish to go and that the DCI should go for those that have committed serious offenses.



Others believe that he was simply arrested for doing his job.That the crime he is being charged with is what bloggers do.


Also some other Kenyans expressed how they were disappointed that one can not do their work without the fear of being  caught .
