“Pole Dennis. Get well soon. God is Almighty,” was a post posted by Vice President William Ruto on his Twitter account after visiting blogger Dennis Itumbi at Nairobi West Hospital.
The blogger, who is also Ruto’s digital strategist, was rushed to hospital last Friday morning.
Itumbi was abducted and beaten on Thursday before being left naked on the side of the road in Lucky Summer Street, Kasarani. He had injuries to a large part of his body and was found by a taxi driver.
Itumbi was then taken to Life Neema Hospital in Kasarani area for treatment and drip IV, then transferred to Nairobi West.
He was then taken to the intensive care unit after receiving complications from pneumonia.
His friends Martin Gitau and Josiah Murigu, who visited him at a hospital in West Nairobi, said he had a respiratory ailment that caused him to be admitted to the intensive care unit.
The blogger has not avoided attacking senior government officials many times.
