Tanga Tanga WhatsApp group administrator Noah Keino today appeared in court to testify in the case against Statehouse Director of Digital Communications Dennis Itumbi.
Itumbi was charged in relation to a letter alleging a plot to assassinate Deputy President President William Ruto.
However appearing before Chief Magistrate Martha Mutuku at a Milimani court, Keino said though the letter was posted in the group by Itumbi, he could not confirm if he was the author.
He stated that he saw the alleged fake letter posted in three other WhatsApp groups and on Facebook.
The witness also told the court that he created the WhatsApp group to publicize DP Ruto ahead of the 2022 presidential elections.
He said his mobile phone had been confiscated by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations in relation to being an administrator of the Tanga Tanga WhatsApp group which has a membership of Senators, MPs and MCAs allied to DP Ruto.
In the case, Itumbi is facing charges for allegedly making a false document, publishing a false statement and re-programming his mobile phone.
