Has blogger Robert Alai landed plum job after Twitter chat with Sonko?
Blogger Robert Alai has seemingly bagged a job at Governor Mike Sonko’s City Hall following a brief Twitter chat over the weekend.
Alai appeared to have nailed the job after offering himself to Sonko to enforce the building code and get rid of sub-standard buildings in the capital city
This was in response to Sonko’s tweets on rescue operations in Ruai after a four-storey building collapsed on Saturday morning.
Alai replied to the governor: “Give me the job of enforcing building code. All sub-standard buildings will come down.”
Sonko quickly asked the blogger to contact him for a Monday meeting.
Two other Nairobians offered their services to Alai, saying they would help in mobilization as well as execution of the building code.
Some however protested the governor’s invitation saying the job should be given to engineers and not bloggers.
Give me the job of enforcing building code. All sub-standard buildings will come down.

Good jobs required professions with ethics to stand out. Standing out in social media profession does not qualify one to building & structural engineering. This invitation is like kawaida a good PR. Am treating this as just an invitation for tea with the Governor. Go enjoy!
