In his post, the journalist called on the ruling party to replace Tuju with his deputy Soy MP Caleb Kositany. “To assist Jubilee Party to continue without interruptions and representation of the party in Cabinet, “on a need basis”, it is natural that the deputy SG Hon Caleb Kositany will be in-charge or so I think,” he argued.

Itumbi’s sentiments angered a section of Kenyans online with some arguing the Tanga Tanga wing of Jubilee could have hatched a plan to “eliminate” the former Rarieda MP. “Someone wanted Raphael Tuju dead! See God, he will heal him,” Thomas Amakanji said.

Other netizens joined in and condemned him over the tweet.
