Controversial Blogger, Robert Alai has come under criticism after he made a statement following the passing away of the former 1st Lady Lucy Kibaki earlier today.
News of Mama Lucy’s death while undergoing treatment in London, was received with shock after President Uhuru released a press statement with the news.
In his tweet Robert Alai raises an issue about ownership of Laico Regency, a hotel in city that was once riddled with controversy.
Maybe the Kibaki’s family will now tell us who really owns the now bed bug infested Laico Regency. #LucyKibaki #RIPMamaLucy — Robert ALAI (@RobertAlai)
His post hoewever, rubbed some Kenyans on Twitter the wrong way. Infuriated online users vented their fury on him accusing the blogger of what they termed as “Immaturity and Insensitivity” to the Kibakis as they mourn the loss of their loved one.
