Itumbi claims he was not paid when he worked at State House

Former Director of Innovation, Digital and Diaspora Communication in the Office of the President, Dennis Itumbi recently came up with claims of non-payment. Itumbi said that while working at StateHouse, he did not recieve pay for an entire year.

As a former member of the Presidential Strategic Communications Unit (PSCU), Itumbi explained the behind the scenes we never get to see.

Itumbi claimed that Manoah Esipisu was one of the people that caused his unceremonious exit. Esipisu is the former State House Spokesperson. Currently, he is Kenya’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom.

Dennis Itumbi lost his job earlier this year in March. Asked what caused his unceremonious exit, Itumbi alleged that he, on several occasions crossed paths with Esipisu.

On one occasion, Itumbi proposed that they make some changes on the team. Unfortunately, Esipisu did not agree with him. His disapproval was unfortunate because Itumbu specifically required his approval in order to hire more people.

Noting that Esipusu was reluctant to approve the changes, Itumbi decided to directly approach President Uhuru Kenyatta. Luckily, the president signed off on the project.

No pay

“They (Esipisu) saw it as Breaking News on their phones as they took their stroll in the gardens. For a whole year, avoiding the details, we worked without a salary and accessed State House only on the strength of a News Release,” Itumbi wrote.

Additionally, he said that he did not understand why they were victimizing him. According to him, they were only re-shaping the communication of the Presidency to suit the digital age.

“The idea was that the Presidency, in the modern era did not need to be covered but communicated. I made a small mistake there by naming it a Unit as I was to learn later. Lessons of Life,” Itumbi explained.

Itumbi lost his job at State House when they were re-organizing¬† the President’s communications team.
