One instance that caught the attention many was when the blogger exposed Rachael Ruto to public ridicule by saying that she had given out OMO donations in Turkana.

Itumbi lied that Mama Rachael was in Tukana helping the poor, which was not the case. In his tweet, he used old photos of the first lady in a different function.

“A donation by Mama Rachel Ruto in aid of fellow Kenyans facing hunger in Turkana and Baringo drought,” tweeted Mr Itumbi.

This tweet exposed Rachael to public ridicule from netizens who criticized her for giving out OMO instead of food and later on discovered that it was not true.

Afterwards, the blogger was forced to send a public apology.

“I apologise for images I shared here earlier. Mama Rachel Ruto was not in Turkana I relied on unverified images. This was my mistake and I am sorry. I have since deleted them. May the record reflect the true position and my apology too,” wrote Itumbi in March 2019.

At this time, famine had hit Turkana County, with hundreds of residents dying of hunger. Many politicians visited the area with donations such as food and clothing for the residents.
