STATE House digital strategist Dennis Itumbi was released on Wednesday on a cash bail of Sh100, 000, following his last week’s arrest in connection with a fake letter alleging a plot to assassinate Deputy President William Ruto.
Senior Resident Magistrate Zainabu Abdul also directed the police to return his phone within two weeks. While dismissing the prosecutions applications to have them detain Itumbi for more days Abdul, said that the investigating team has not shown the court the progress made so far after they were granted five more days to hold Itumbi when they presented him in court on July 4.
The court also directed him to report once a week to the investigating officer at Muthaiga police station in the next 14 days. He was required to surrender his passport to the court to guarantee future appearance. The matter will be mentioned on July 22 to confirm the progress made in ongoing investigations.
