A magistrate court has postponed hearing of ICT Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) nominee Dennis Itumb’s defense case.
Itumbi was been charged over a fake assassination letter on President William Ruto published in May 30, 2019.
The lawyer representing Itumbi told the court that his client cannot appear for the defence hearing because of heightening demonstrations in the country on Monday.
According to the lawyer, Itumbi’s name was mentioned by the principal planner of the demonstration and he was advised to stay away from the city during the period for his security.
The court allowed the application and postponed the matter to June 7.
Itumbi had said that he will call several Cabinet Secretaries and Members of Parliament to testify in his defense. He was placed on defense early last year after the prosecution closed its case.
