Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has broken his silence on threats issued by Jubilee Vice Chairman David Murathe against him, Nairobi senator Johnson Sakaja and Lamu’s Anwar Oloititip.
Murathe in an interview with The Standard had threatened to kick out of Jubilee party the three senators over their stand on the controversial County revenue sharing formula.
Murathe said the party would take disciplinary action against Sakaja and his colleagues for conspiring with fellow senators under the “One Kenya Movement” banner to shoot down the Senate Finance and Budgets Committee report.
Murathe accused the three of defying the party position last week and sank its proposal.
“We are not yet done, we will deal with the senators for going against the party position. They will have themselves to blame for their parochial decisions. We will kick them out of the party. Read our party constitution, it gives room to deal with them,” Murathe was quoted by the local daily as having said.
He said whereas the other Jubilee senators from the affected counties had their grievances against the formula, Sakaja, Murkomen and Oloititip acted defiantly and maliciously given that they had no credible grievance.
But in response to the headline ran by the Standard on Tuesday August 4, 2020, Murkomen said the story confirmed that he was doing the right thing.
Seeming unshaken with Murathe’s threats, the former senate Majority leader said such headline can only confirm that the peace in his heart flows like a gentle river.
“When I see such a headline I am so assured that I am doing the right thing and the peace In my heart flows like a gentle river,” he tweeted.Do you have any story you would like to share? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will publish it. You can also contact us at email@example.com
