Dennis Itumbi who has been working at the Presidential Strategic Communications Unit (PSCU) as the Digital Communications Director has lost his job.
The Public Service Commission said tha Dennis Itumbi and four other colleagues were no longer State House employees.
The other four who were afected are James Kinyua, Erick Ng’eno, David Nzioka and John Ndolo.
It is not yet known why the five were fired. Speculation has it that the four are allied to Deputy President William Ruto.
Their contracts were expiring yesterday and they had applied for extenion but the State House declined and sent them home.
Itumbi has in the past been interogated by the Directoate of Criminal Investigations after he was accused of publishing false information over alleged planning of the assassination of the Deputy President.
fter the news of him being fired broke, Itumbi deleted the title of PSCU Director from his Twitter page and updated it to a “Pig farmer”
