Blogger Robert Alai was on Thursday arrested for linking TV anchor Julie Gichuru’s husband, Tony Gichuru, to land grabbing in Nairobi.
The blogger was detained at the CID headquarters as investigations into statements he made on the grabbing of the Lang’ata Road Primary School playground and another piece of land in Ruai continue.
Alai tweeted on Thursday; “Presented myself to police at 9am. Being held overnight despite presenting myself after being called. This is funny!”
He later posted on his Facebook page; “Been arrested for sharing stories regarding Ruai and Langata Public land grab on my Facebook wall. Being taken to Muthaiga police station.”
