Bloggers across the political divide are up in arms over the arrest of Robert Alai following a sensitive story touching on the family of a senior member of the society published on his blog.
Alai is said to have been arrested on Friday at around 10am by officers who stopped him and asked him to get out of his car at gunpoint before driving him to Kamkunji police station where he is still in police custody.
Bloggers are now demanding for the release of Mr Alai burying their differences under the hashtag #FreeAlai.
The controversial Alai on most occasion has been accused of working for the ruling Jubilee party and playing negativity for the opposition
Some of the bloggers on the other hand feel to them the arrest did not matter so much because Mr Alai had been hitting hard the side they support and seem to be celebrating the fact that he had been on a side that might have bred the arrest.
