Itumbi Allegedly Beaten by Police over Moses Kuria’s Detention (Video)

Digital Strategist, Dennis Itumbi, was on Friday night allegedly brutally beaten by police officers at Kilimani Police Station, Nairobi after he joined Tanga Tanga Mps in seeking the release of Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria.

In a video clip seen by Opera News, Itumbi lamented that he was attacked by 18 policemen after he went back to the station to take his car.

“Wamenichapa. They have really hit me as I went back to take my car. 18 policemen rained blows, they start kicking me.” Itumbi said.

“I am even shocked by the police. They would rather even have arrested me and put me in the cell and my only mistake is to go to a public police station to pick my car. Surely?” He added.

He later stated on twitter that he was treated and discharged.

Itumbi had earlier gone to the police station to record a statement in favour of Moses Kuria, who was arrested for allegedly assaulting Kiambu activist, Joyce Wanja.

“I will be in Kilimani later to record a statement in his favour. The complainant wanted money. Moses said he was NOT guilty and would not be blackmailed! Hii ingine ni Cinema.” He wrote on Twitter.

The Digital Strategist said that the police rejected to release the legislator despite his lawyers having obtained court orders.

He also claimed that the police responded to them by saying “We will not obey court orders. Our orders are from Harambee (House). Go ask our bosses.”

Kuria was arrested on Friday morning after a woman identified as Joyce Wanja accused him of assaulting her at the Royal Media Services.

The woman claimed that the MP assaulted her after an interview at the Inooro TV where she asked the legislator to be careful with his words.

She said that the MP kicked and punched her after she asked Kuria to withdraw his remarks regarding women during a function in Kiambu County.
