Dennis Itumbi, former Director of Digital Communications at the Presidential Strategic Communication Unit (PSCU) has posted his first message hours after Public Service Commission (PSC) declared his post null and void.
Taking to his social media handles, Itumbi posted a simple message ‘Amen’ saying that it was all he had to say for today.
“Pastor's Moment: Amen! That is all today, Amen. God Bless You and Keep You” posted Itumbi.
Itumbi, was, however, not the only one who lost his job. The others included, John Ndolo (Principal Information Officer – Head of Digital Strategies), lawyer Eric Ng’enoh (Senior Director, Communication (Speech Writing) James Mureithi and David Musau (Directorate of communications, events and branding).
The PSC CEO Simon Rotich through a letter to the Interior CS Fred Matiang’I on March 18, said that the positions were scrapped in a bid to reorganize the government.
Itumbi, who lost his job on his birthday, received a lot of messages and advice from Kenyans and other leaders.
Elgeyo Markwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen said, “You served the State with passion & commitment in the most difficult period;3 elections & ICC. With COVID19 it’s the worst time to lose a job. You are in my prayers. God will provide for u & ur families. It is well!”
Martha Karua said, “@OleItumbi son we may not be on the same page politically, but as a mother I say to you it shall be well.”
Former presidential candidate Mwalimu Dida said,” l recently twitted about Dennis Itumbi being the interim president in absence of HE Uhuru and his touring DP Ruto. l understand that just days later, Itumbi's post was disbanded, rendering him an "active job seeker with 7yrs experience". May that young man find peace in his life.”
Dennis Itumbi has been the Director of Digital Communications for the past seven years. He has since changed his description on Twitter to ‘Pig farmer.’
