Detained blogger Robert Alai set to be released

06 February 2015, 14:19 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Blogger Robert Alai will be released Friday, a day after being detained for comments made regarding land grabbing in the country.

The well known blogger was detained Thursday afternoon after he agreed to appear for a police summon and was taken to the Muthaiga Police Station, where he was not released despite cooperating fully with officials.

He was in his own admission detained at the police station and expected to be released in the evening, but that did not happen.

Sources at the CID told News24 that Alai was still in their custody Friday and that he would likely be released by evening on bail.

" He is still here with us. He will likely be here till evening," the source said.

There is still no official police confirmation as to why they are detaining the blogger and also what will likely be done as regards his case.

According to the blogger, he took himself to the CID after he was summoned to answer to allegations that he had misused his Facebook account in talking about incidences related to land grabbing in Langata and Ruai.

" Been arrested for sharing stories about land grabbing in Langata and Ruai. Being taken to the Muthaiga Police Station," he said on his Twitter account.

Alai has been arrested before for posts made on Social media, being released on bail not so long ago for undermining the President by posting his phone contacts online.
