Deputy President William Ruto’s Digital Strategist Dennis Itumbi has been discharged from Nairobi West Hospital where he has been receiving treatment for the past week.
Itumbi was discharged on Saturday afternoon and addressed the press accompanied by three Members of Parliament (MPs).
The MPs were Alice Wahome (Kandara), Ndindi Nyoro (Kiharu) and Nickson Korir (Langata).
Itumbi accused the government of being behind his kidnapping and torture.
“They can intimidate us, but they will never silence us,” he said.
The blogger was reportedly admitted with fractured bones in the legs and hand.
“The doctors have assured me that I’m now okay. I will be coming back here for normal medical checkups,” he added.
On December 30, DP Ruto visited him in hospital and claimed that Itumbi’s torture was carried out by police officers.
“I spent time with Itumbi last evening, saw his heavily bandaged arm and legs, the result of torture by people who should have been there to protect him and us all.
“They have now turned violent and fatalistic after all the negative narratives, threats and blackmail against us failed.
“Like Dennis, we all must be strong knowing that in a few months we will defeat impunity, entitlement, arrogance and abhor and free our nation for good. Pole Dennis. Get well soon. God is the Almighty,” the DP wrote on Facebook.
