Blogger Dennis Itumbi has sent a message to President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto thanking them for making him what he is today.
In a tweet, Mr Itumbi who worked as the Senior Director, Communications, Digital, Innovation, and Diaspora Communication in the Presidential Strategic Communication Unit (PSCU) said that the president and his deputy had transformed him (an unknown villager) into a news maker.
He also thanked the two for believing in him, mentoring and protecting his job as he called on his followers to ignore the untrue story ran by Daily Nation.
“Asante sana President Uhuru & DP @WilliamsRuto, you have transformed an unknown villager to a headline news maker, Asante for believing, mentoring, continuously growing & protecting my hustle. Never mind the Creative Imagination, Raw Fiction & Phantom writing by @dailynation,” said Itumbi.
The story by Nation outlines how Dennis and other PSCU officials failed the President’s communication.
Others who were fired alongside Dennis Itumbi include;
Senior director of communication, events and branding James Kinyua Mureithi
Senior director of communication, speech writing Eric Ng'eno
Director of communication, events and branding David Nzioka Musau
Principal information officer, head of digital strategies John Ndolo
