Days after the self-titled Hustler Nation Intelligence Bureau (HNIB) spokesperson Dennis Itumbi alleging that the Interior PS Karanja Kibicho had booked a ticket to leave the country immediately after the election for Australia, outspoken lawyer Wahome Thuku has blasted his claim.
Wahome Thuku who is a close friend of the PS and top support of the Azimio-OKA coalition took to Facebook to remind Kenyans of Itumbi's lie hours after the PS appearing in public and in a national address.
He also explained that contrary to Dennis Itumbi's allegations, the PS is among those working in the Presidential transition committee and therefore allegations that he would've left the country are lies.
He shared a screenshot of Itumbi's earlier post with a caption that "Karanja Kibicho is a member of the committee overseeing the Presidential transition together with Kinoti.
I saw them at a news conference yesterday telling us how they are planning for the power change. I thought they should have fled to Australia on 10th. Ama they changed mind? Let me ask them."
Speaking in a media briefing from Harambee House yesterday on August 12th, the Presidential transition committee chairman Joseph Kinyua who is also the current Head of Public Service said that the committee will move into action immediately the IEBC formally announces the results of the Presidential elections and declares the President-elect from the same.
He also announced that the new President's inauguration date will be declared a public holiday "in accordance with the primary Act of Parliament".
He also made it clear that the functions of the committee include among others to facilitate the handling of the handing over power by the outgoing to the president-elect."
