Hustler Nation spokesperson Dennis Itumbi has blasted DCI boss George Kinoti for lying to Kenyans regarding the three controversial Venezuelans.
The Venezuelans Jose Gregorio Camargo Castellanos, Joel Gustavo Rodriguez and Salvador Javier Suarez were arrested at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport after they were found in possession of election materials.
Their personal items including laptops, phones and flash disks, that IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati said contained important and sensitive information relating to the forthcoming elections as well as projects undertaken by them for other countries, were also confiscated.
According to DCI, the materials were destined for a private residence and the trio were in the country following an invitation by one Abdullahi Abdul, CEO of Seamless Limited.
In a lengthy statement, Kinoti noted that the individuals were not in the country to represent Smartmatic, a foreign company tasked with printing election materials in readiness for the August 9 polls, as it had been claimed by IEBC.
The DCI boss accused Chebukati of being insincere and dishonest since the three individuals had been disowned by IEBC staff. The fact that the materials were ferried in personal luggage without any security caused further suspicions on their exact motive.
Itumbi however claimed that it was Kinoti the one who was lying to Kenyans regarding the three foreigners since there is no way Kenya would have issued expired passports as the letters indicates the visa requests had been submitted earlier this month.
“The HEADLINES addicted George Kinoti woke up on a Sunday Morning to lie.. HNIB has obtained a letter that shows Kinoti woke up to spew Lies as usual. The other lie was about expired Passports. How did Kenya issue a Visa on Expired Passports?”
Itumbi shared on Twitter in the wee hours of Monday morning accompanied by a letter that indicated Rodriguez was in the country on official duty. The same had been shared by DCI including that which was seeking for a one time Business visa for Camargo for 6 months.
The letter dated July 4, 2022 indicated that Rodriguez was invited by Abdi, who is a local partner of Smartmatic. The letter was addressed to the officer in charge of the visa section.
