State House Director of Digital Affairs Dennis Itumbi was yesterday arrested by detectives attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).
I warned Dennis Itumbi - Dennis Onsarigo reveals after Itumbi’s arrest
Itumbi was arrested at the Nairobi CBD.
Itumbi was picked up in Nairobi CBD and bundled into a car for questioning over the controversial but fake letter that claimed to detail an assassination scheme on the DP.
Following his arrest, Former KTN journalist Dennis Onsarigo revealed that he had warned his good friend Dennis Itumbi against getting too comfortable with the government because, at some point and time, the same government will devour you.
“My good friend Dennis Itumbi has been arrested. I have told this man a million times that EVEN those who CLAIM to be in GOVERNMENT are not GOVERNMENT and THOSE who claim to be the SYSTEM eventually get DEVOURED for the SYSTEM is HEARTLESS and always PREVAILS,” tweeted Dennis Onsarigo.
Itumbi denies that he is a wanted man
Itumbi’s arrest comes about a week after he trashed social media reports that claimed that he was one of two officials in Deputy President William Ruto’s office being sought after in connection to the fake assassination letter.
In a question and answer session on his Facebook page, the blogger denied having gone into hiding – even revealing his usual route from work to the office which he said remained unchanged.
“I left home early as usual. I use Kiambu road on my way to work,” he said adding that he was not aware that detectives from the DCI were pursuing him.
In a separate post, the outspoken digital strategist condemned the Nation’s reporting of the alleged assassination attempt on the DP.
He particularly took issue with several stories run between Friday and Monday – claiming the DCI was looking for senior communications officers in the deputy president’s office.
“Journalism is at its lowest form when @dailynation pens a story & reproduces allegation after allegation - but does not bother to call or text any of the communication officers in the Presidency they claim are being sought by @DCI_Kenya & are in hiding. Objective verification,” he posted.
