"You Have Until Friday," Matiangi Goes After Dennis Itumbi After He Did This

Over a long period of time now, Hustler Nation spokesperson Dennis Itumbi and interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang'i have been engaging in an unending battle over the Ruaraka land saga.

The saga has seen Itumbi to continuously refer to Dr Matiang'i as 'Ruaraka thief' in all his social media posts.

Matiang'i has always played cool. However, the powerful Cabinet Secretary has now threatened to sue Itumbi, who adds up as Deputy President William Ruto's aide for calling him "Ruaraka thief" on his tweets.

CS Matiang'i is now demanding a retraction of the tweets by close of business on Friday.

Last year, the anti-corruption court dismissed Itumbi's application seeking to have the Interior CS charged with graft in Ruaraka land saga.

Itumbi could later accuse chief magistrate Douglas Ogoti of bias and trying to have him arrested perjury when his application emanated from a High Court ruling on the same matter.

Ogoti dismissed the application saying the blogger failed to explain how he accessed the information or documents in his affidavits that he intended to use against the CS.

Itumbi had moved to court seeking its direction over the Ruaraka land scandal.

Itumi claimed that he has four corruption counts against Matiang'i relating to the Ruaraka land.

He said he decided to move to after what he termed ‘laxity’ by EACC and the DPP to act against the CS, despite a High Court decision that confirmed the land was public and was illegally acquired.
