Kenyan blogger Robert Alai has on Tuesday been arrested by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) for investigation.
The arrest of Robert Alai follows a picture he posted onMonday of police officers who died in Wajir after they run over an ImproviseExplosive Device (IED).
The National Police Commission responded to the pictures condemningthe sharing of the pictures of the dead police officers.
They continued by saying sharing of the pictures can be constructed as glorifying acts of terrorism as well as cause despondency to the armed forces, families of the victims and the unity of the country.
Mr. Alai was ordered to immediately pull down the said photos which he did.
On his part, blogger Robert Alai said he will continue to speak for the poor police officers who are neglected and their allowances taken by “wakubwa”
