Itumbi roasted for posting picture of Raila’s ‘Canaan’ moment

July 28th, 2017 1 min read

State House Director of Digital Communication Dennis Itumbi was on Friday slammed by Nasa supporters after he posted an undated picture of opposition leader Raila Odinga with a woman seated on his lap.

The photo, posted on Twitter, captures a smiling Mr Odinga enjoying the company of the woman, with Siaya Senator James Orengo drinking from a tall glass on the background and paying no attention.

Itumbi captioned the picture ‘Canaan’, a biblical reference Mr Odinga has been using to symbolize the new Kenya if he is elected president.

The picture irked Nasa supporters who considered it a low blow from President Uhuru Kenyatta’s side, and quickly gave Itumbi a beginners lesson on social media use: The internet never  forgets.

Twitter users fished out equally ‘innocent’ pictures of Itumbi in a compromising position Citizen TV reporter Jacque Maribe.

Soon after, photos of President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto also in compromising positions with different women emerged.

Here are a few reactions from social media on Itumbi’s photo of Mr Odinga.
