DPP's blunder on day one of Itumbi's case

DPP off to a shaky start in case against Denis Itumbi

DPP fails to file statements from 256 members of Tanga Tanga WhatsApp group in Dennis Itumbi case

The prosecution team in the case against government official Dennis Itumbi was on Monday put on the spot after the judge pointed out an oversight on their part.

Magistrate Kennedy Cheruiyot noted that the DPP had not submitted statements from 256 members of Tanga Tanga WhatsApp group who had been summoned by the DCI.

"The court has not been told how many statements have been recorded from the 256 members of Tanga Tanga group who are spread across the Country," he stated.

The charges against Itumbi are ridiculous - Lawyer Kigen

Mr Itumbi, however, was given an opportunity to take a plea to three charges - making a false document without authority, publishing a false statement and reprogramming a mobile phone.

He denied all charges with one of his lawyers, Mr Katwa Kigen, terming them as ridiculous.

Magistrate Cheruiyot adjourned the case and set August 5 as the pre-trial date and two hearings scheduled for September 2 and 3.
