Uhuru has never given me a posh house - Itumbi

By: Nairobian Reporter

What is your day-to-day routine like? I go to bed around 2am or 3am because I have to engage with the Diaspora who are in different time zones. Before retiring to bed, I spend 30 minutes studying the Bible or other Christian literature in preparation for my Pastor’s moment, which is my first post on Facebook every day. I wake up at 5am for a seven-kilometre jog, after which I go through digital papers before my vendor delivers my newspapers. I am in the office by 6.30am, depending on my station in any day. My job is highly mobile. I compare my diary with the President’s to ensure they are in-sync. How has the appointment changed your life? For the last 10 years, I have lived in Kiambu in a place called Thindigwa. My appointment has not changed my lifestyle. I came from the village, I herded cattle and I had jiggers. Sometimes I wonder why having jiggers is portrayed as shameful. As a boy, the jiggers made me bond with my grandmother, since she had to massage and inspect my toes. This was always an exciting experience. When I first came to Nairobi, I lived in Mukuru slums before I moved to Mbotela. There are, however, some social places I can no longer visit owing to the nature of my job. Even updating events on social media is tricky these days because there is a thin line between Dennis Itumbi the person and the brand he represents. Is there a tug-of-war between you and some powerful people determined to get your job? There’s no way you can grow in the absence of critics. A person with no challenges cannot run or complete a race. It’s the player with the ball who gets called all sorts of names and jeered by spectators. Dennis Itumbi is in a race. I can hear the cheers and the jeers on the terraces, but my eyes are trained on the finish line. Is it true that the President bought you a multi-million shilling house in a Nairobi suburb? That is total nonsense. President Uhuru Kenyatta, for the record, does not give handouts. He’s not going to give you fish, but he would give you a fishing rod. Why would he give me a house? I know he can instead give you a job, then you to decide whether you want to buy a house or not. He is my boss, my friend, trainer and mentor. Did you hack the International Criminal Court (ICC) account to expose witnesses? Are you a hacker? I do not doubt my ability to utilise new technology. I sued the ICC because of that claim and the ruling is on their website. They denied ordering my arrest, following which I filed a case in the Kenyan courts to seek clarification. Once the case is over here, I will go back to the ICC to seek further clarification. It’s not over until it’s over. Am I a hacker? That is up ...
