Seasoned scholar and re-known political analyst Professor Makau Mutua and former Statehouse digital strategist Dennis Itumbi set internet ablaze after engaging in exchanges ov the just concluded Juja by-elections.
It all began with the professor delving on the matter asking if it could be an indication of President Kenyatta losing grip of his Mt. Kenya backyard, after Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria’s candidate outshined Jubilee party’s candidate.
“Gatundu South MP @HonMoses_Kuria gives Uhuru Kenyatta a shellacking in his Juja backyard. Could this be a sign that Mr Kenyatta has lost Mt Kenya and won’t be a factor in 2022?” he tweeted.
In a quick rejoinder the ardent DP Ruto supporter reminded Makau for not believing in the Tanga Tanga noting that he had only been a factor in his Column, Tweets, and Imagination
“He has only been a Factor in your Column, Tweets, and Imagination. We told you the truth you are discovering now a long time ago.” Itumbi said while reacting to the tweet.
This however did not auger so well with Makau who advised the blogger to find himselt a partner, settle down and stop jumping around.
“Kijana — wamusyi — I told you to find a partner and get married. Settle down uwache kupayuka!” Prof Mutua responded.
The seemingly in agreement Itumbi then asked prof if his executive resort in Kitui was still operational to share the pin, so that he could take her catch there once he found one.
“Agreed. Is your Kitui pub, that was opened by Tinga still operating? I may get my blossoming flower to water with the oxiginated blood of my heart there…..weka Pin,” Itumbi responded.
Professor Makau then roughed it up by welcoming Itumbi to the luxurious suit, adding that their political ideologies should never be miread for enemity.
“Wakwitu, not only is @VillaKitui in full bloom, it’s a “bottom up” venture built with clean money. We are expanding. I will personally welcome you there, and even buy you a cold one. We are political opponents, not enemies.”
