Blogger Alai charged for claiming EACC boss has fake degree

Controversial blogger Robert Alai has been charged in court for alleged improper use of a licensed telecommunication system.

Alai was accused of using his Twitter handle on November 18th, 2015, to cause annoyance that Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) Chief Executive Officer Halakhe Waqo has a fake degree.

The blogger claimed that Waqo was hired using a fake degree from the University of Nairobi.

It is alleged the blogger argued that it is ironical for Waqo to investigate corrupt individuals whereas he holds a fake degree.

Alai, who was appearing before Milimani Chief Magistrate Daniel Ogembo, denied the charges and was freed on a Ksh 100,000 cash bail with a similar surety or an alternative bond of Ksh 30,000.

Alai is facing similar other charges and the cases are still pending in court.

The case will be heard on 16th and 17th March 2016.
