Itumbi eats the humble pie, apologises for wrongful tweet
Immediately after posting the pictures, some of his hawk-eye twitter followers noticed that the photos shared by Itumbi were actually shared on Rachael Ruto’s Twitter handle back in 2014.

And while many of his followers were left wondering why he would share old photos, Itumbi was quick to delete the pictures after realizing his mistake and reprehensible comments that followed. This prompted him to respond by tweeting an apology, with the caption:

I apologize for images I shared here earlier.— Dennis Itumbi, HSC (@OleItumbi) March 20, 2019
Mama Rachel Ruto was not in Turkana
I relied on unverified images.
This was my mistake and I am sorry.
I have since deleted them.
May the record reflect the true position and my apology too.
