Dennis Itumbi Salary Before He Was Fired

His rise to the top was a copy paste of the ‘from rags to riches stories’. Dennis Itumbi was a staunch defender of President Uhuru Kenyatta-if only he did not overdo it. His over-zealousness compounded with lack of tact-led to his demotion and ‘expulsion from State House where he enjoyed near unfettered access to the Head of State House.

Demotion
Before the Presidential Strategic Communication Unit (PSCU) was restructured, Itumbi was the Digital Director Innovations & Diaspora Communication State House. The Deputy Chief of Staff Nzioka Waita was keen on streamlining the President’s unstructured communication that had made a habit of issuing statements-mostly conflicting-without approval. The first casualty was Dennis Itumbi. He was reportedly kicked out of State House and his changed bio was proof enough of a man whose career was sinking. His twitter bio has since changed to: Kenyan Journalist, Digital Strategist and Blogger. Currently Secretary Digital. Innovations&Diaspora Comms.

Working from Harambee Annex Office
According to a story appearing on Business Today, Dennis Itumbi is now working from Deputy President William Ruto’s Harambee House Annex office. With his propagandist credentials, Itumbi is seen as a valuable player in DP’s Ruto grand plans of being the next President of Kenya come 2022. His downfall was accelerated when Uhuru and his erstwhile political nemesis decided to bury the hatchet and work together in building a united Kenya. Ruto, who has been receiving bad publicity, will find the services of Dennis Itumbi useful ahead of the next presidential election. A recent poll by IPSOS ranked the DP as the most corrupt leader in Kenya.

Dennis Itumbi salary
While his salary still remains the same, it’s the trapping of power the 39 year old will miss most. However, all is not lost for the man who was a darling of TV political shows where he defended-if not vigorously-his boss and the Jubilee Party. His salary is estimated at kes320,000 and he will get much more working for the DP.
