Testimonies against Ukhano

A number of screenshots surfaced of Ukhano conversing with girls on Snapchat and attempting to steer the conversation towards a more sexual course.

Additionally, the vlogger stops the women from taking screenshots of that chats – probably explaining why he used Snapchat in the first place; a social media app where messages disappear after they have been viewed.
