Deputy President William Ruto’s digital strategist Dennis Itumbi will be confined to bed for at least a month, Ruto has revealed.
In a series of tweets on his official Twitter handle, Ruto said those who abducted and assaulted Itumbi wanted to kill his spirit, “but DI is strong and in very high spirits though doctors say he will be confined to bed for a month.”
Ruto who visited Itumbi at the Nairobi hospital on Tuesday said, “Like Denis, we all must be strong knowing that in a few months we will defeat impunity, entitlement, kiburi na madharau and free our nation for good.”
Another tweet read, “Spent time with Comrade DI last evening, saw his heavily bandaged arm and legs, the result of torture by people who should have been there to protect him and us all. They have now turned violent and fatalistic after all the negative narratives, threats and blackmail against us failed.”
Itumbi went missing on Thursday 23rd December 2021 with reports indicating that he was abducted by four men after leaving a barbershop on Thindigua along Kiambu road.
He would later be found on Friday in a bad state and rushed to a hospital on Thika road before being transferred for specialised treatment.
MPs affiliated to TangaTanga have condemned the incident saying those culpable must be brought to book.
