Thursday July 4, 2019-Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen has dismissed the arrest of former State House Director of Digital Communications Dennis Itumbi as a strategy to divert attention from ongoing DP William Ruto's assassination investigations.

In a tweet, Murkomen, also a close ally of the DP, accused the State of intimidating Itumbi so as to divert the attention from members of the public.

"Arrest of Itumbi is a strategy to divert attention from the La Mada meeting and plan to kill Ruto. Was there a meeting? Did PS in charge of DCI say Ruto must be stopped Saitoti way? Who complained about assassination? And to who? The authenticity of the allegations is more important than a letter," Murkomen wrote.

Yesterday, officers from Flying Squad arrested Mr. Itumbi, a close ally of DP William Ruto, over claims that he is among those who forged the alleged assassination letter.

A letter making rounds on social media purportedly from a minister indicated that a section of Cabinet Secretaries met to discuss on how to eliminate DP Ruto.
