It’s no longer a threat as journalist and blogger Dennis Itumbi has filed a civil case against controversial blogger Robert Alai

over statements Robert made linking him to the ICC classified documents that even made him get arrested.

Dennis Itumbi posted on his Facebook wall, ''social media must get its position in society, we can’t allow reckless comments, ridiculous allegations and malicious defamation to continue having a place here. For this reason, am heading to Millimani Law courts to file what could be Kenya’s first social media defamation case’’.

This will be the first social media case in Kenyan courts and by the look of things, this will reduce rumours and deliberate misinformation on social media.

Itumbi wants Robert to pay him for damages he incurred, and also the mental torture he underwent at the hands of the police.
