Blogger Alai to vie for MP in 2022

Outspoken blogger Robert Alai has announced plans to contest for a parliamentary seat during the 2022 elections.


Speaking to a local radio station, Alai said that his decision to contest for a political seat was brought about by voters' wishes.


“I am going to vie for the Nyando MP seat in the coming elections,” said Alai.



In the interview Alai refuted claims that he’s a gun for hire to the highest bidder, revealing  that he’s not a blogger by choice but circumstances.  



“I don’t get paid. I have done a lot of free work and I think it's time they started paying."



" I'm not a blogger, I'm a computer scientist- I only write because I have an opinion,” he added 



On his Head of State Commendation (HSC) award, Alai denied claims he paid for it while maintaining  that he was feted for exemplary work. 



“I'm not elected but I influence society. Whether it's positive or negative, it depends on who you ask. We have saved and changed lives. People started talking ill simply because I was awarded alongside Githeriman,” said Alai
