In addition to the arrest, Itumbi was accused of publishing the letter before purporting it was a genuine document form a Cabinet Secretary.
On 10th July he was released on a Ksh 100k bail but under the condition that he does not discuss the ongoing case on social media.
Magistrate Zainab Abdul faulted the Prosecution team for providing insufficient evidence that if released on bail he will interfere with the investigation.
Speaking on the arrest of the State House Digital Director, Senator Kipchumba Murkomen termed his arrest as a strategy to divert attention into the La Mada meeting.
He asked if anyone has complained about the assassination and to who?
“Arrest of @OleItumbi is a strategy to divert attention from the La Mada meeting&plan. Was there a meeting? Did PS in charge of DCI say Ruto must be stopped Saitoti way? Who complained about the assassination? And to who? The authenticity of the allegations is more important than a letter.” Said Hon. Murkomen
