Mwendo Mailu, a fake GSU Officer who lied that he had funded YouTuber Mungai Eve has finally been arrested.
He is being detained at Kileleshwa Police Station.
According to Mungai Eve's advocate, some businesses have threatened to stop working with Mungai as a result of the viral video.
"The video has serious untruth and defamatory statements. My client has made her brand through hard work and she feels whoever wants to jeopardize that must face the law.
Adding that; "The accused is facing charges of impersonating a police officer, defamation He has no record of the things he has accused my client of."
The advocate says despite offering an 'apology' the damage had already been done due to how viral the video became.
"We have confiscated his equipment they will undergo forensic tests as he awaits his appeal on Monday."
The fake officer is to be charged with defaming the YouTuber.
Eve had earlier confirmed that her advocate had reached out to Mailu and he has accepted liability.
“I hope this shall not only be a learning experience but a warning at the same time that using others via unscrupulous ways to climb up the social economic ladder is not ideal but illegal too.
"The law does not have mercy and ignorance is not a defense,” read part of Mungai's post.
Mailu put up another video admitting that he has never met Eve Mungai despite lying to the public that they dated sometime back.
He said that he was using the YouTuber to chase clout – begging for her forgiveness.
Mungai had prefaced her threat of the impending arrest with a post she made yesterday where she wrote,
"Just because you don’t see a beast it doesn’t mean the beast ain’t there, be careful playing with someone’s kindness they have tamed their beast!"
