ODM supporters have not taken Alai’s voracious and consistent attacks on the former Prime Minister lightly and have threatened to give him a beating if he showed up for an ODM dinner organized last night.
Alai had tried to pacify ODM supporters by visiting Raila Odinga in his offices and even posing for photos-although that did not seem to work if the vitriol being poured on social media is anything to go by.
The blogger was hosted last month by President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House and money is said to have exchanged hands-allegations we cannot independently verify. This is said to have instigated Alai’s vicious attacks on his ‘mentor’.
Here is Alai response after learning ODM supporters are after his blood:
I am being told that a bunch of pig sty smelling layabouts are claiming that they will beat me if I attempt to attend "the ODM dinner" on Friday. I didn't know that there was some dinner organized by ODM.
Secondly, why are we struggling to replace Uhuru Kenyatta if Raila Odinga's leadership will also be through thuggery, coercion and intimidation? Why don't we stay with the devil we know?
Thirdly, I will attend ODM functions when I want. Attempt whatever you want to attempt and know that you don't have a body made of metal. Maybe you will come worse off.
