A day after a group of MPs and Senators from Rift Valley held a meeting and resolved to remove Murkomen as chairman of the Rift Valley Senators and MPs Parliamentary Group, another meeting led by Murkomen was convened yesterday.
In the meeting held on Tuesday, the leaders said they are not amused by statements made by the Elgeyo Marakwet Senator about divisions between President Uhuru Kenyatta and DP William Ruto terming his conduct divisive.
The leaders in cohort with Jubilee Senators from Mt. Kenya are already reaching out o senators from NASA in a bid to oust Murkomen from the powerful and lucrative Senate majority leadership seat and pegging the move on Murkomen’s arrogance and incompetence.
The faction is led by MPs Alfred Keter (Nandi Hills), Silas Teren (Moiben) and Joshua Kutuny (Cherangany)
Kutuny described Murkomen’s as divisive and demeaning to the President.
“His statement is unfortunate, reckless and meant to injure the image of the President. I ask him to come out boldly and tell the country what he knows about the ‘cartel’ he purports controls and are arm-twisting the head of state,” Kutuny said.
But in a quick rejoinder, Murkomen led a different faction in a meeting yesterday and tabled the resolutions in a Facebook post.
“We have just emerged from a routine housekeeping meeting that was deemed necessary in order to provide a reassuring signal to the Jubilee family and all Kenyans.
Our sole purpose remains that of leading our constituencies along Jubilee’s transformational journey to achieve a better Kenya for all people.
This journey requires our total loyalty and principled commitment to the founding vision of the Jubilee movement. By necessary implication, this commitment calls for vigilance and total rejection of all elements, ideas and attempts to undermine the vision, or sabotage our leadership, or divide our people.
We cannot be loyal to the Jubilee family, its leadership and founding values while at the same time condoning retrogressive, destructive and divisive agendas. Our strong stand against these connivances as well as their perpetrators is therefore fully consistent with our total loyalty and commitment.
Our meeting has therefore achieved it’s purpose of strengthening our resolve to assist His Excellency the President and His Excellency the Deputy President in rallying all efforts towards building a strong, united and prosperous Kenya through our party’s manifesto.
Kipchumba Murkomen, EGH
