He has often written poems to his friend Jacque Maribe while she was in prison and Dennis Itumbi has now offered support to immediate former Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu.

In his latest poem, Itumbi has offered Waititu his prayers and encouraged him to keep fighting.

To my friend, Mr. Waititu,

May Justice like the mighty waters, in the fullness of time, deliver fairness and truth.

Politics should never defeat the Law.

You are in my prayers and I must add, it is not over yet...

Keep fighting. Keep seeking Justice. It shall be well.

Waititu was impeached this week after the Senate found him guilty of three charges which were tabled before it by Kiambu County Assembly.

Senate Speaker Ken Lusaka stated the three main charges namely; Gross misconduct, abuse of office and engaging in corruption.

In his defence, through his lawyers, Waititu had argued that the process was not procedural as it was not supported by the required two-thirds of Members of Kiambu County Assembly.

In addition, his lawyers maintained that Senate had not followed the set timelines.

The House started hearing the charges against the governor on Tuesday following his impeachment by Members of Kiambu County Assembly on December 19, 2019.

During the proceedings, senators heard how Waititu influenced the award of county tenders worth millions of shillings to his wife and three daughters.

The Senate was told that although the county assembly approved road contracts worth Sh1.4 billion in the 2018/19 financial year, the county government awarded Sh2.1 billion worth of tenders.
