DP Ruto: Security agents tortured Itumbi

Deputy President William Ruto has sensationally suggested that security agents tortured Dennis Itumbi.

The DP, after visiting the controversial blogger in hospital on Tuesday evening, explained on his social media pages that he was ‘beaten up by people who should protect him and us all’.

 

Ruto also confirmed that Itumbi requires month-long bed rest as he heals.

 

Itumbi, who informally joined the DP’s communication team after falling out with President Uhuru Kenyatta is said to have been abducted by unknown people in Kiambu, in the outskirts of Nairobi during the festive season.

He resurfaced days later, with his relatives and political associates claiming he’d been tortured and left for the dead by people who wanted to kill him.

Police have called for calm and confirmed the matter is under investigation.

Itumbi has hogged media headlines for various reasons in the recent past.

He’s been arrested and charged with authoring a false document in relation to a claim on the DP’s life.
