After Senator cum Lawyer Kipchumba Murkomen was yesterday exposed as ignoramus by a scathing- perhaps even condescending letter from ODM courtesy of its SG/ lawyer Edwin Sifuna, he attempted a comeback on twitter that was a gargantuan flop.
In a letter to Murkomen, ODM through Sifuna said there exists no mechanism to appeal the decisions of the party’s National Executive Council.
This was after Malindi MP Asha Jumwa and her Msambweni counterpart Suleiman Dori hired the Elgeyo Marakwet Senator to fight their expulsion from the party.
The two, in a letter copied to ODM’s National Governing Council, said there was a complete disregard of the constitution of the party in the manner and style the disciplinary committee arrived at the decision to expel them.
But ODM said it will not admit strangers to any of its internal deliberations on the matter.
“It is frankly embarrassing for your clients to claim to be champions of the values and aspirations of ODM when they have no basic knowledge of the constitution of the party,” Sifuna said.
He said Juma and Dori have drifted from the mother-ship and that their expulsion was a matter of the party’s internal process and its membership.
“We strongly suggest that you and your clients take time to familiarize yourselves with the constitution and rules governing ODM to save yourselves from such ignorant misapprehensions in future,” he said.
And then he attempted to rubbish the letter as ‘fear’ from ODM with the below tweet
“I can understand why ODM are scared of my appearance on behalf of my clients before their National Governing Council. Unfortunately the right of my clients to be represented by a counsel of their choice is a mandatory requirement of Kenyan Constitution which I swore to defend.”

Does your action here now show the rebels that you also don't welcome them to your @JubileePartyK yet they were singing praises for your leadership? The least you could do is grant them membership and direct nominations to defend their seats. Don't you want such popular members?
