Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen went ham on his Siaya counterpart James Orengo and his ODM party over plans to sponsor Deputy President William Ruto’s impeachment motion.
Through Twitter, Murkomen dared ODM party to bring the motion to the senate further assuring that it would not see the light of day.
The senate majority leader castigated ODM saying that they have confirmed plans that the DP hinted on Saturday during the burial of Sergent Kipyegon Kenei in Nakuru County.
“The good thing with ODM is that they can’t hide these things for too long. They have confirmed the plans that the DP hinted yesterday. BRING IT ON!” Murkomen wrote on Twitter.
On Saturday, Orengo hinted at sponsoring an impeachment motion against Ruto over investigations into Sh39 billion arms scandal and Sergent Kenei’s murder.
“Watch this space. In two weeks we will start the process that will see us deal with him,” Orengo said during the funeral services of University of Nairobi’s Prof Gilbert Ogutu and politician Omolo Rading’s son.
DP Ruto on Saturday turned onto the government, accusing its leadership of elaborate scheme to finish him off.
The DP accused unnamed government officials of boasting that he will not be around for long. He further claimed that the murder of his aid Kenei was a double ploy to set him up against his community while also scandalizing his office.
Murkomen and other like-minded politicians have been accusing the ODM party of using BBI to undermine DP Ruto’s 2022 presidential bid.
