The Friend and her husband were sympathetic and tried their best to make them as comfortable as they could. A fortnight after their arrival, Quincy gathered everyone one morning to show them an article that had appeared in The Star's Website. The heading: Esther Arunga Staying With Friends in Dubai.
Quincy took it out on their hosts for betraying them and running to the media with stories about their financial situation. The Friend was the one who had faciliated Esther's pre-natal clinic visit and so he claimed she was the only one who could have known that she was two months due. Apparently, Esther herself had no idea how long she had before that clinic visit.
The article on The Star Website was published on 17th February, 2012 by Grace Kerongo. The article has details which were provided by an unknown source and which is corroborated by various other sources. One comment was left by a commenter known as Daily Telegraph, which has since been confirmed as an account set up by Quincy to "report" on stories regarding the couple. "Daily Telegraph" takes it out on Ms. Kerongo for "manufacturing lies" and even threatened with a lawsuit.
On investigating, The Friend found out that prior to The Star, the news was broken by Sydney News. In the original article, which had terrible grammar, The Friend's workplace and details on how she contacted the media with the story was published. That is when it dawned on her that Sydney News was written by Quincy himself in a bid to put a wedge between Esther and The Friend.
He was probably angered by the fact that the story had now been picked up by a wider circulation paper. This was just the beginning of the games Quincy would play to undermine the very same people who had helped him out of a difficult situation and even hosted them abroad.
