Robert Alai is a  Kenyan Blogger internet entrepreneur and cyber -activist. Alai, who used to run the now defunct information technology weblog at has earned notoriety for his relentless stream of social rants that misleads, somewhat entertains and, not unusually, embarrass public officials in equal measure.

Robert Alai has been sued and briefly incarcerated for his highly opinionated political and sometimes personal attacks on politicians, government officials and business leaders. A self-styled screamer and voice of the voiceless, Alai’s intrepid and gung-ho pursuit for positive action, and his almost rabid distaste for slow processes or corporate bureaucracy has turned him into an icon for justice, albeit in a fashion different from common civil society.

On Saturday, Robert Alai reached the 1 million followers mark on twitter. He appreciated his followers after achieving that landmark.
