However, hawk-eyed netizens were quick to correct him after discrepancies arose between the pay bill number he provided and that of West Pokot County government.

Apparently, the initial number provided by the West Pokot County Government through the County Secretary John Karamunya was 711222, hence differing with that of Itumbi.
