Itumbi roasted for posting picture of Raila’s ‘Canaan’ moment
State House Director of Digital Communication Dennis Itumbi was on Friday slammed by Nasa supporters after he posted an undated picture of opposition leader Raila Odinga with a woman seated on his lap.
The photo, posted on Twitter, captures a smiling Mr Odinga enjoying the company of the woman, with Siaya Senator James Orengo drinking from a tall glass on the background and paying no attention.
Itumbi captioned the picture ‘Canaan’, a biblical reference Mr Odinga has been using to symbolize the new Kenya if he is elected president.

The picture irked Nasa supporters who considered it a low blow from President Uhuru Kenyatta’s side, and quickly gave Itumbi a beginners lesson on social media use: The internet never forgets.
Twitter users fished out equally ‘innocent’ pictures of Itumbi in a compromising position Citizen TV reporter Jacque Maribe.
Soon after, photos of President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto also in compromising positions with different women emerged.
Here are a few reactions from social media on Itumbi’s photo of Mr Odinga.

It's almost midnight. Get a wife to get you a baby to cuddle to sleep. You are too old for this kind of nonsense.
