"Yale ambayo yamenipata this last week Mwenyezi Mungu anihurumie, I was just chilling and then Gen Z wametokelezea," he lamented, describing the sudden influx of calls from unknown numbers.

Machoka, a household name in the Kenyan radio scene, explained the peculiar nature of these calls.

"Mimi nimejifunza kuchukua simu zangu zote, they ring I pick inakata, when I call back another comes and more kept coming and I wondered what’s going on," he said, highlighting the frustration and confusion that followed each unanswered call.

The mystery deepened when one caller finally spoke up, revealing the reason behind the relentless calls.

"Finally, one man told me to tell my niece to release Edgar, which is true, Orwoba is my sister's daughter," Machoka confirmed, connecting the dots between his distress and the political drama involving his niece.

Realising the gravity of the situation, Machoka took to social media to investigate further. "I went on X and found they had shared my contact and I wondered what this was and more calls kept coming and I wondered what was happening," he shared, illustrating the social media frenzy that had ensnared him.

Despite his efforts to clarify the situation with Senator Orwoba, the calls did not cease.

"The next morning I called Orwoba and asked her what was happening and she said the matter was police case but I was suffering because of that," Machoka explained.

Frustrated and exasperated, Machoka pleaded for peace. "It is so bad, it is so annoying. I started this conversation but now you are making me the bad one and it’s probably because of this that you are here. Stop molesting me, please leave me alone," he implored.
