The genesis and crux of the fox-kittenish verbal brawl between Elgeyo Marakwet Governor Alex Tolgos and his abrasive senator has been hitherto revealed.
The tiff between the two has got absolutely Nada or very trivially to do with the Senator holding the Governor to account as is expected of his oversight duties- it has been revealed that Murkomen is targeting Tolgos because he is ‘stingy with tax payers resources.’
The attacks which got worse the past months has forced Tolgos to join businessman Bundotich Buzeki into staging a walk-out from Tanga tanga.
Just before he ditched Ruto’s camp- Tolgos had faced onslaught from Murkomen who during a Senate sitting, said the problem with Elgeyo Marakwet was lack of ideas by the county administration led by Tolgos.
He accused the governor and his team of lacking proper leadership qualities.
But in a counter rebuttal, Tolgos accused the senator of concentrating on abusing other leaders at political rallies oblivious of the fact that the same people he abuses may find their way to State House.
“Murkomen has been abusing ODM leader Raila Odinga. I wonder what he will do if he will find Raila in State House. I also know how to abuse but am not primitive and insults won’t help me,” the governor said.
Tolgos said the senator should understand his work is first to serve the people who elected him before going for national politics.
“Murkomen has never, even on one occasion come to the county to meet our staff and know who they are and how they work. Many of the staff we have hired are more educated and qualified than Murkomen. It’s unfair for him to say they have no ideas to run the county,” he said.
“He should keep off from abusing me just because am always quiet. Let him know that I also have the capacity to respond,” Tolgos said.
And respond he did by ditching Tanga tanga after he fathomed that Murkomen was only acting on behalf of the big guy himself.
Tolgos had ostensibly refused to and was consequently on the chopping board for blocking the use of county funds for personal errands. Things are so bad that the governor has been in some occasions forced to lie to the parties involved just to avoid brushing shoulders with them.
But responding to the exit of his governor from Ruto’s political board, Murkomen avoided more politics, claiming he is paying more focus on service delivery.
“My greatest focus now is to serve the people of Elgeyo-Marakwet including addressing matters insecurity in Kerio Valley. I do not have time now to engage in sideshows,”
