Taking to the social media, Itumbi protested claiming that the station has been using Ruto's news as fillers citing biasness towards him. He further claimed that Citizen TV is being used to campaign for ODM Party leader Raila Odinga just like the America's Fox news which was reportedly used by Trump for his campaigns.
"9.37pm, 34 minutes into News, no story on @WilliamsRuto," he protested.
His remarks triggered reactions from Ruto's allies led by Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungwa and Soy MP Caleb Kositany.
Caleb claimed that the ultimate decision lies in the hands of the people adding that Stare projects will not succeed.
"Let the people decide. State projects will fail," he responded.
Ichungwa claimed that even Trump lost in America despite having Fox news in his favor affirming that people's decision will always stand out.
Ruto's camp has been pointing fingers at Citizen TV as well as other media groups including Mediamax whose ownership are linked to SK Macharia and Kenyatta's family who are currently rallying behind Raila Odinga.
