The team of Deputy President William Ruto suffered a major setback after President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Jubilee Party removed two allies of Ruto from the Jubilee senate.
Journalist Abuga Makori has claimed that the setback has exposed DP Ruto for not having the numbers after President Uhuru managed to remove Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen as the Majority leader in the Senate and Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika as the Majority Whip.
Makori said DP Ruto’s camp did not have the numbers to save the two leaders just like how the camp failed to save former Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu who was impeached.
“Ruto doesn’t have numbers. They failed to save Waititu and now, they’ve failed to save Kipchumba Murkomen and Susan Kihika by causing Quorum hitch. Uhuru Kenyatta will always have his way. DP is losing Banknote with euro sign to brokers for nothing. 19 senators, Murathe wins again,” said Makori.
The remarks come after Digital Strategist Dennis Itumbi claimed that statement by State House lied about the number of senators present during the Jubilee Coalition Senate Parliamentary Group Meeting which was chaired by President Uhuru.
“Interesting, State House has lied in an official statement. That meeting only had 15 people. If they had numbers watoe list na PICHA. Chopper sent for Senator Ali, rejected. Senator Naomi Waqo stood her ground too,” said Itumbi.
Journalist Makori however slammed Itumbi telling him and Tanga Tanga to stop looking for numbers on social media.
“To my friend Itumbi and Tanga Tanga, numbers are not found on Twitter. The real numbers have sent Kipchumba Murkomen home. Uhuru Kenyatta is a super schemer. Congratulations Samuel Poghisio. Murathe mobilized 19 Senators, 2 sent apology. Join or chicken out,” added Makori.
Murkomen has been replaced by KANU’s West Pokot Senator Samuel Poghisio while Kihika was replaced by Murang’a senator Irungu Kang’ata.
