Monday September 12, 2016 – Over the last couple of months, blogger Robert Alai has been throwing torrents of insults at ODM party leader, Raila Odinga, his daughter and a litany of his supporters.
Alai, who has been an ODM ardent supporter, changed his tune after he allegedly fell out with Raila Odinga months ago.
According to an impeccable ODM source, Alai fell out with Raila Odinga after he refused to endorse him for the Embakasi East Parliamentary seat.
Alai was interested in the seat but Raila instead seems to have indirectly endorsed University of Nairobi student leader, Babu Owino.
Raila Odinga argues that Babu Owino has more influence than Robert Alai.
He also argues that Babu Owino has deep pockets than Robert Alai.
Raila’s line of thinking infuriated Robert Alai who started campaigning for President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election in 2017 hoping to get nominated as MP in 2017.
“Alai is now campaigning for Jubilee Party hoping to be nominated by President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2017,” one ODM official was quoted saying.
