After spending months out in the cold, Elgeyo Marakwet senator Mr. Kipchumba Murkomen finally has a reason to smile. The vocal politician has been on the receiving end of scathing attacks from every section of the Uhuru Kenyatta government.
His close association with the Deputy president has brought him more harm than good. Known for his unmeasurable public outbursts against the President, Murkomen was made to eat his words after the President removed him as the leader of the majority in the senate.
The lawyer turned politician has however continued to maintain a strong stand against a government that he calls corrupt. Murkomen has been very critical of President Kenyatta. According to him, the President had failed to deliver his agenda to Kenyans and that’s why he was victimizing them to cover his woes.
Murkomen who tried to fight his dismissal in court but was not successful could finally have a reason to smile after current Deputy Speaker Margret Kamare revealed him alongside the other nine senators had been appointed to serve in the devolution committee.
Others in the committee include; Senators Aaron Cheruiyot, Anwar Loitiptip, Rose Nyamunga, Boniface Kabaka, Victor Prengei, Mwaura Isaac, Cleophas Malala, and Senator Kajwang.
It will be interesting to see if Murkomen will accept the latest appointment after he turned down the opportunity to serve in another committee in the recent past.
Meanwhile, share with us your thoughts on the matter. Do you think Murkomen should accept the latest appointment to serve in the senate?
