Friday July 5, 2019 - Police in Muthaiga have banned visitors from visiting State House blogger, Dennis Itumbi, who is detained at the police station.
On Thursday, the court detained Itumbi for 5 days to allow investigators to complete their work.
Itumbi was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly writing a fake letter about Deputy President William Ruto’s assassination plot.
He was arraigned in court on Thursday and the Magistrate detained him for 5 days.
It is while on detention that Muthaiga OCS, Alphonse Kimengua, was interdicted by the Interior Ministry for reportedly giving Itumbi a mattress and a blanket to sleep on.
Police in Muthaiga are now not allowing anybody to visit Itumbi including his close family members.
A police officer who requested anonymity said that they fear losing their jobs should they allow visitors to see Itumbi.
“We can’t allow visitors again in his police cell,” said a police officer.
