Kenyans on twitter immediately started a hashtag #FreeXtiandela wanting to know if Vlogging is a crime and also seeking for the release of the blogger. XtianDela was later released and given back his phone and camera.

I’m actually surprised that it’s kind of illegal to vlog in a mall in Kenya. We need to embrace the digital eracome on! #FreeXtianDela
