Nyeri Town MP Ngunjiri Wamabugu has fired back at Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen following his reaction to the Building Bridges Initiative Bill Constitutional Amendment Bill 2020 success in County Assemblies.
Taking to Twitter on Tuesday, February 23, the Senator wondered why the BBI proponents were happy with the new development yet they are on their own.
“Why are BBI promoters excited and overjoyed? When you are running on your own, how are you celebrating that you won?” Wrote Murkomen.

However in a quick rejoinder, Wamabugu told off Murkomen and the entire Tanga Tanga team, mocking their presidential ambitions.
“Look at you! You guys have been running for President by yourselves and celebrating that you are winning!” Wrote Wambugu.

Tukunia wanjiku is waiting for this thing we shoot it down like 2005 draft constitution. MCAs were under pressure with a dangling carrot infront of them in the name of car grant. #rejectbbi— Eliud Mwangi (@kahigaeli) February 24, 2021
