State House Digital Strategist Dennis Itumbi has claimed he was beaten by 18 police officers at Kilimani Police Station on the night of Friday, January 10.
In a video clip that has gone viral on social media, the president’s official said the men in uniform rained kicks and blows on him after he joined a section of Tanga Tanga MPs in seeking the release of Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria who had been detained at the station.
One netizen Abraham Mutai shared the clip on Saturday, January 11.
“Last night Dennis Itumbi was beaten senseless by police at Kilimani police station. He was crying and wailing. From defending the government to being beaten by the same government,” he tweeted.
The journalist later confirmed he had been treated and discharged.
“Treated and discharged. Strong. Niko sawa ( I am okay) he tweeted.
Kuria had been arrested for allegedly punching Joyce Wanja, a media commentator, on Sunday, December 8, 2019, during a debate on a vernacular station owned by RMS.
He is expected to be arraigned in court on Monday, January 13.
As the internet never forgets, Kenyans asked Itumbi to “silently” reap his fruits of supporting police brutality in the past.
