Secretary Digital, Innovations & Diaspora Communications, Dennis Itumbi, has disowned an online campaign pushing for DP William Ruto’s presidency.
On his Twitter timeline, Itumbi, on Thursday, explained that the online campaign, #VoteForRote, had been sponsored by detractors to paint a picture that the deputy president was already in a campaign mode.
“In April 2019, this group running hashtag Vote For Ruto, and purporting DP William Ruto is already in campaign mode, did exactly the same thing. It is a group financed by people whose strategies have all failed. We wish them well in their remedial twitter exams!” Itumbi tweeted.
As we said at the time, same sound, same noise, same lyrics – Same Choirmaster! This is an orchestra with a team, instruments & cash. But their melody lacks a tune and rhythm! But once again, we wish them well.

The same sentiments were shared by another Twitter user, Brian Khaniri, who termed the campaign as propaganda sponsored by Ruto’s detractors to taint his image.
“VOTE for RUTO campaign is propaganda pushed by his detractors meant to taint his reputation by painting an image of someone in campaign mode. Dr Ruto has been very clear that he is focused on service delivery & 2022 politics will come at the appropriate time. IGNORE PROPAGANDISTS,” Khaniri stated.
The campaign has been highlighting his major achievements which are meant to convince the electorate.
Here are a few posts endorsing Ruto’s Presidency.
Whoever that is pretending they don’t want to hear about 2022 should go to the river and wash their eyes and ears.
