First it started with a poorly half baked expose by socialite blog Ghalfa linking Cyprian Nyakundi and Xtiandela to an extortion ring.
Days later, Nyakundi was reportedly arrested by flying squad officers after being lured to the Parklands Police Station.
According to Xtiandela, the problems that have befallen Nyakundi emanate from tweets posted by Robert Syundu.
The tweets imply that top military brass are benefiting from the Somali war as KDF soldiers continue to be mauled by Al Shabaab.
Here is the tweet from Robert Syundu:
Some senior Military officials have become very wealthy ? Does military allocation reach the boys ? Modern weapons ? Via @C_NyaKundiH— Robert Syundu (@RobertSyundu) January 19, 2016
Kenyans on twitter are questioning the rationale of arresting the blogger instead of concentrating on fighting corruption, endemic crime and terrorism in the country.
This is the reaction from KOT:
