Close According to a Ruto aide, a disbanded DCI unit murdered two missing Indians.

Dennis Itumbi, a close friend of President William Ruto, has publicly admitted that the missing Indians, Mr Zulfiqar Ahmad Khan and Mr Mohamed Zaid Sami Kidwai, were members of the Kenya Kwanza digital campaign team.

He claims that the two made a significant contribution to Dr. Ruto's campaign's success. Mr Itumbi was central to Dr. Ruto's presidential campaigns.

Mr Itumbi said in a Facebook post that one of the two reached out after being drawn in by the team's online campaign strategy and expressed interest in working with them for free.

They then exchanged contact information, and their friendship began.

The pair agreed to assist the Kenya Kwanza campaign team whenever they were needed.

"When our team was overburdened and we needed graphics, I sent (material) their way, and they paused whatever they were doing and did me the favor," he explained.

Mr Itumbi added that the team was always given extra campaign material.

He recalled receiving over 1,000 creative pieces that were more than they needed at one point.

He reasons that as they became acquainted, their enemies became common, as did their vices.

"They went to Mombasa, Homa Bay, (Masai) Mara, nyama choma joints, and they loved our dance joints," he explained.

"They invited me to India, and I told them I'd come after the elections." Their main focus was on making the most of their time in Kenya. "They produced very appealing content when they sat down," he added.

The news comes on the heels of the disbandment of the Special Service Unit (SSU), a group accused of extrajudicial killings.

The team is suspected of being involved in the disappearance of the two Indians.

Mr Khan and his friend Mr Zaid went missing from Mombasa Road, along with taxi driver Nicodemus Mwania.

They were kidnapped in front of the Ole Sereni Hotel.
The trio went missing on July 25 after being abducted outside the Ole Sereni Hotel.

Mr Itumbi described SSU as a unit out to "literally kidnap, assault, maim, and kill innocent people."

He claimed that the disbanded detective unit targeted those who voted for Dr Ruto in the recently concluded elections.

"Zaid was such a one-of-a-kind person; a good soul [and] a happy guy who was here to tour Kenya," Mr Itumbi wrote on his social media account.

Last Saturday, President Ruto ordered the disbandment of SSU after the unit was linked to the disappearance of two Indians.

Today, 21 detectives from the unit were summoned to the headquarters of the Internal Affairs Unit (IAU) in Nairobi (Friday, October 21, 2022).

Mr Itumbi now claims that the two Indians and their driver are dead. He provided no proof, only promising a part two of his exposé.

"As usual, they (Zaid and Ahmad) went above and beyond. "A meme here, a video there, a box quote here, and a lot more," he explained.

"We even had a Telegram group that rarely went silent, with endless ideas," he continued.

Mr Itumbi recalled learning two days before they returned to India that the couple had misplaced a phone during a night out.

He remembers thinking about laughing at them and even going to the bar where they hung out in the hopes of meeting them.

But that was never going to happen. He would never see them again.

"They were unable to be reached," he explained. "I only recently learned of their agonizing last moments in the hands of people whose sole mission was to ensure Dr Ruto did not become President, even if it meant killing people."
