Wetangula asked for Uhuru Kenyatta's number- Itumbi
– Dennis Itumbi has revealed that he heard Bungoma Senator, Moses Wetangula asking Uhuru Kenyatta for his telephone number
– Itumbi was called in from the NTV studios during a discussion of the recent chaotic anti-IEBC demonstrations

Maybe the president changed his phone number. Has a new one. According to Dennis Itumbi- the director of digital communication at the office of the president, Moses Wetangula asked Uhuru Kenyatta for his number.
Itumbi revealed this to a panel of experts who had congregated at the NTV’s AmLive show. They were deliberatig on a recent spate of protests meant to bundle Kenya’s electoral body out of office.
President Uhuru Kenyatta stretches out to Cord leader Raila Odinga at State House, Nairobi. It is alleged that the Bungoma Senetor asked for Uhuru’s new mobile number.
When Wetangula and the Cord his co-principal Raila Odinga attended a state luncheon at the State House, the Bungoma senator categorically asked Uhuru for his telephone number- said he wanted to talk to him.

Moses Wetangula said he suffered immense irreparable reputation damage coupled with ridicule and contempt before his electorate and right-thinking members of the public.
Wetangula reiterated his commitment to the ideology, values and objective of Ford Kenya and Cord. He had at no time sought financial help from Jubilee, he said.
The Bungoma senator told Justice Lucy Njuguna that he warned Walukhe against repeating such remarks but the accused went ahead to utter them in political gatherings across the country.
He now wants the MP be ordered to compensate him for the alleged defamatory remarks.

The revelations by Itumbi comes after the president claimed in the National Prayer Breakfast on Friday, June 3, at Safari Park Hotel that the opposition leaders including Wetangula were busy fighting and praying for what God has already given the country.
Uhuru further said that he was not ready to dialogue with the Cord as they demanded.
