Tonight, popular television show host Jeff Koinange will host two of Kenya’s foremost and pioneer bloggers.
State House Digital Director ‘hacker’ Dennis Itumbi will share insights on the state of the nationÂ with Techmtaa blogger Robert Alai. Both Itumbi and Alai are peculiar, if not controversial, in their own ways. And each has a cult-like following on social media.
Both have been charged with misuse of telecommunication equipments, which is the single ‘offence’ I share with both. Alai is serial ‘law breaker’ in the republic of social media, and currently has several charges in various law courts in Kenya with many such cases already dismissed by the courts.
Itumbi, a somehow deeply religious man, is President Uhuru’s chief propagandist, with an online troll army of several thousand bots known for churning out pro-government tweets, and anti-opposition tweets and posts in equal measure.
