‘I told You Uhuru is a Dictator, Now See the Taxes’- Senator Murkomen to Sakaja

Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen in his inherent combative nature is not mincing words on who to blame over the increased fuel taxes.

Murkomen believes President Uhuru Kenyatta made the decision to have the fuel prices pushed up and called on him to reconsider by assenting to the Bill that Members of Parliament passed to stop the punitive increment.

While reacting to a similar plea by his Nairobi counterpart, Johnston Sakaja, who also pleaded with Uhuru to slam breaks on the rising fuel prices, Murkoment said when he opposed the forceful Mau evictions, he was fighting for a related cause, which was to stop the government from harassing poor citizens but Sakaja pounced on him with terse warnings.

“I agree with you Hon Sakaja on this. But remember you issued a statement publicly when I visited the people of MAU against this approach. In your own words you warned me against “inciting Kenyans against Uhuru’s initiatives” because it is “…disingenuous, underhand and disrespectful,” the Elgeyo Marakwet senator reminded Sakaja in a tweet.

Sakaja responded by reiterating that Murkomen was indeed disrespectful

“A world of difference between us. Your statement was against what @UKenyatta had already done. Mine is urging him to do..to assent to the amendment by National Assembly. You said people are being kicked out because of the handshake 🤝. Disingenuous, underhand and disrespectful!”

“Kutetea raia maskini bro haina formulae. That’s why you can see the people of Mau are being attended to. I Welcome you to this noble mission even if it means you have to contradict yourself. On this one I forgive you.”
