The Government has scrapped five positions for Senior Directors at the Presidential Strategic Communications Unit (PSCU), effectively sending Dennis Itumbi and four other directors home.

Itumbi was the Senior Director in charge of Digital, Innovation and Diaspora Communication at State House but lately, he tweets more in defense of the Deputy President William Ruto.

On his Twitter profile, Itumbi always identified himself by his State House title, but changed to a ‘Pig Farmer’ on Wednesday night.

While Itumbi, worked as a State House Director, he often attacked senior government officials, including Cabinet Secretaries and Principal Secretaries on various policy matters on Twitter.

He has been heavily critical of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), and in particular, its Director George Kinoti, accusing him of contradictions on various active cases.
