This comes after Dennis Itumbi lashed out at the Daily Nation newspaper over an article he alleges indirectly and erroneously links him to an ‘assassination’ letter against Deputy President William Ruto.
The newspaper carried an article on Sunday which said two of Ruto’s aides are being sought by the DCI on suspicion they circulated the letter. It said the two are from the communications department.
“They mentioned where the communication officers allegedly being sought work. We are about 10. None of us got a call or a text. Copy and paste journalism from unnamed sources who lie, should not find a home,” Itumbi said.
He went on, “Journalism is at its lowest form, when @dailynation pens a story and 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 and are in hiding. Objective verification.”
The article went on to say the two officers from Ruto’s office had their phones off over the weekend and that one of the aides left Nairobi over the weekend for fear of being arrested.
