Blogger Robert Alai arrested after leaking photos of Kenyattas in hospital
Blogger Robert Alai was arrested on Friday morning and detained overnight at Kamukunji police station.
Mr Alai was arrested at 9am as he was leaving for the burial of slain IEBC ICT manager Chris Msando in Siaya county.
Mr Alai is the chairman of Nyayo Estate Residents Association, where Mr Msando lived with his family, and was supposed to deliver a speech at the funeral in Lifunga village.
He was arrested days after leaking photos of members of the Kenyatta family in a Nairobi hospital.
The photos showed President Uhuru Kenyatta’s mother, Mama Ngina Kenyatta, and uncle, George Muhoho, in a sombre mood at the hospital late at night.
The photos were however unexplainably pulled down from Mr Alai’s Facebook page just hours after he had posted them.
