Itumbi visits taxi driver ‘who rescued him’ after abduction

Dennis Itumbi has offered to help the taxi driver who is reported to have rescued him following his recent abduction and taken him to hospital.

The controversial blogger visited Boniface Makokha on Thursday to thank him for his actions on December 23, 2021.

Itumbi is reported to have been abducted by unknown people who are yet to be arrested.

He was then tortured and left for the dead at a bush near Lucky Summer from where Makokha is said to have rescued him stark naked, clothed him, and taken him to Uhai Neema hospital.

“I must admit if it were me driving and came across a naked man at that hour I would have hesitated to stop. For you to stop and listen to my predicament and taken me to hospital is beyond call of duty. You are one selfless man,” said Itumbi.

Makokha, a taxi driver said he acted how he would expect anyone to do at that moment and he did not help Mr Itumbi out of knowing him but an act of help to a fellow human being.

“I was headed home when I saw a naked man talking to bodaboda operators and on close inspection I saw it was a man in distress and I offered to help,” he said.

Itumbi is set to host a thanksgiving mass at his home church in Gichugu on Sunday, where he is also expected to announce his bid to vie for the area parliamentary seat.
