Director of Digital at the PSCU Dennis Itumbi has apologised for lying to Kenyans through a tweet on his official Twitter page, alluding that DP Ruto’s wife, Rachael Ruto was offering aid.

It all started when Itumbi shared photos of Mrs. Ruto receiving food donations to drought-stricken Turkana and Baringo counties with the caption: “A donation by @MamaRachelRuto in aid of fellow Kenyans facing hunger in Turkana and Baringo drought.”

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.
