Dennis Itumbi has on Wednesday arrested by detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).
Dennis Itumbi was arrested at a restaurant within Nairobi before he was taken into a waiting vehicle.
It is not yet clear why Itumbi was arrested but it is alleged that it is due an assassination letter addressed to the Deputy President William Ruto.
Word has it that detectives looking into the alleged assassination of DP William Ruto are closely following up two suspects.
On Monday Itumbi accused Daily Nation for lowering standards of journalism when they published an article on his imminent arrest by DCI detectives.
He said that as journalist they did not bother to call or text any of the communication officers in the office of the President.
“Journalism is at its lowest form, when @dailynation pens a story & reproduces allegation after allegation – but does not bother to call or text any of the communication officers in the Presidency they claim are being sought by @DCI_Kenya & are in hiding. Objective verification” Said Itumbi on twitter.
Why Dennis Itumbi was arrested
Last month four Cabinet Secretaries were grilled at the DCI headquarters for allegedly plotting the assassination of the Deputy President at Hotel La Mada in Thika.
The CS’s were namely Sicily Kariuki (Health), Peter Munya (Trade), Joe Mucheru (ICT) and James Macharia (Transport).
In response to the allegation, CS Peter Munya admitted there was a meeting at the said hotel but the discussion was on the developments of the Mt. Kenya region.
Dennis Itumbi has however been linked to the assassination plot following a story broke by Daily Nation.
According to the article, detectives are said to be zeroing on two suspects close to the President.
