The controversial blogger heard of Ruto’s brother’s death and immediately went on Twitter to ‘add his voice’. The Deputy President’s younger brother Harrison Kiptoo died at Nairobi hospital on Saturday night, reportedly from kidney failure.
On Twitter, Alai wrote, “Ruto couldn’t fund the treatment of his brother but he always dishes envelops to Ababu and his ilk.”
When someone told him that his comment was uncalled for, Alai abused him with his old @Walalahoi account.
Many of those commenting felt that condolences would have been more appropriate in this case, if Alai really felt that he had to comment.
@RobertAlai Foreskin mentality at work
