One evening at a restaurant over coffee, an acquaintance I’d just made suggested I interview Dennis Ole Itumbi, a blogger and the current Director of Digital Communication at the Office of the President. I said I’d look into it. After that, almost every second person to whom I spoke about this quest, would only ask: “Dennis Itumbi? But Why?”
My response remained: “Why not?”
I received variations of answers, most of them alluding to the fact that he comes across as loud, arrogant at times and standoffish.
But I’ve been here before, here where many imagine some high profile figures were born and they simply became. Here, where I become even more excited to do the story and find out if there even is, a story. Here, where I take it up as a challenge to find out if really, people like Dennis Itumbi have always had it all on a silver platter…and Dennis, has not.
