On Thursday, August 11, at The Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA), the digital strategist said that the DP's ally was apprehended by police at Bomas - the National Tallying Centre.
The TV network quickly ended the interview when Itumbi began to make the claims.
Itumbi also claimed that the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) Communications Director, Wanjohi Githae, had been arrested prior to the interview.
Itumbi alleged that "UDA Communications Director Wanjohi Githae and DP's Chief of Staff Davis Chirchir had been arrested."
Elgeyo Marakwet Senator-elect Onesmus Kipchumba Murkomen, on the other hand, indicated that Chrichir was fine.
Senator Aaron Cheruiyot agreed with Murkomen. Nonetheless, he stated that attempts were made to arrest Chirchir as he exited Kenya's Bomas.
"Davis Chirchir is fine and all right. As he was leaving Bomas, the desperate outgoing system attempted to arrest him for unexplained reasons.
"Thank you to the concerned members of the public who came to his aid. When the monkey's death day arrives, all trees become slick "According to Cheruiyot.
Our attempts to contact Githae were useless because his phone was turned off.
Kenyans.co.ke was unable to independently confirm Itumbi's claims because most of our calls to UDA insiders went unanswered.
Chirchir was the Energy Cabinet Secretary during Jubilee's first term in office. After being fired, he was replaced by former CS Charles Keter.
Chirchir later joined Ruto's team during President Uhuru Kenyatta's second term and has been an integral part of the DP's presidential campaigns.
