Controversial blogger Robert Alai was treated abnormally on social media after he launched his bid for Nyando MP, seeking to capture the seat in 2022.
The blogger launched an online platform on slack to engage with his fans and going by the responses, he may need to think twice.
‘Historical injustices’ were revisited as netizens reminded him that he may need to cleanse his name and that of the family as some alleged that his father who served as a chief exploited people.
Alai was also reminded that a man who stands for nothing falls for nothing as a section of netizens equated his bid to hunger for power, questioning why Alai who had declared interest in the Embakasi East seat held by Babu Owino has now shifted to Nyando.
Other alleged that he is an extortionist whose stock in trade is character assassination, slander and blackmail.
Some encouraged him to soldier on despite the criticism that came in thick and fast as sampled below.
Dennis Kipkemoi: Join UDA party, if you want to be nyando m.p
