The former director of digital media in the Office of the President Dennis Itumbi faced the wrath of Kenyans after emotional tweet meant for the ODM leader Raila Odinga’s daughter backfired on him.
The flamboyant blogger taking to his Twitter handle on Monday 23March tagged Raila’s son Odinga Junior asking him to pass get well soon messages to his sister.
Netizens, however, did not take it lightly but went on the to scold the blogger accusing him of broadcasting a personal matter that could have been solved by just calling.
No one could immediately establish which of Raila’s daughters is sick, however, netizens could not hold back as they accused the blogger of clout chasing.
When one of the users asked whether Raila’s daughter had contracted the deadly coronavirus, Itumbi was quick to clarify it was just a normal sickness but Kenyans on twitter gave a deaf ear to his explanation and rather questioned the timing bearing in his mind when the country is facing Covid-19 crisis.
Itumbi has been number one known critic of the ODM vhief and allies which made netizens to question the motive of his emotional messages to Odinga’s kin.
