Dennis Itumbi has been forced to take action after an attempt to make DP William Ruto, Rachael Ruto look good backfired after he was caught lying using old pictures.
Itumbi who is the Secretary of Innovation, Digital and Diaspora Communication has apologised to Kenyans for posting unverified information on Twitter.
Itumbi had posted that Deputy president William Ruto’s wife Rachel Ruto had been in Turkana donating foodstuff. He said that the pictures which he posted based on unverified information.
He has since deleted the pictures from his social media pages. The pictures posted by Itumbi were believed to be from 2014.
Below is his apology:
Mrs Rachel Ruto also confirmed that she had not been in Turkana donating but had attended a prayer conference at the Catholic University of East Africa.
