I am not hiding from DCI - Dennis Itumbi

The DCI is reportedly pursuing 2 officials in Ruto's office

I am not hiding from DCI - Dennis Itumbi denies reports that he is wanted over alleged fake letter on DP William Ruto's assassination

State House Director of Digital Affairs Dennis Itumbi, on Monday denied reports doing rounds on social media that he was allegedly hiding from officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).

Unconfirmed social media reports have claimed that Itumbi was one of two officials in Deputy President William Ruto’s office who were being sought in connection to a fake letter detailed an alleged assassination attempt on the DP.

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 theft detectives from the DCI were pursuing him.

Itumbi added that he had recently been at Central Police Station to check on blogger Robert Alai, in response to one, Wilson Kimunyu, who had asked the State House official to report to the police station.

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 in the deputy president’s office.

Daily Nation

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 said.

Although his official title remains State House Director of Digital Affairs, Itumbi has over the past year largely worked the DP's office after President Uhuru Kenyatta's chief of staff Nzioka Waita re-organised communication management in the Presidency.
