Kenya: Dennis Itumbi Arrested in City Centre Over Ruto 'Assassination' Plot

Dennis Itumbi operates from DP William Ruto's office as State House digital director in the communications department.

Dennis Itumbi was on Wednesday afternoon arrested by detectives in the city centre.

The State House official was arrested by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) near City Hall in Nairobi.

His arrest comes amid claims that the DCI had zeroed in on communication officers in the office of the Deputy President William Ruto after he complained that a group of cabinet ministers from Mt Kenya region had met to plot his assassination.
