Only few months ago, senator Kipchumba Murkomen was a darling of the Kenyan public, the youthful senator from Elgeyo Marakwet did not break a sweet to defeat former powerful cabinet minister-Total Man Nicholas Biwott in the race to the senate.
After the demise of Makueni Senator Hon. Mutula Kilonzo, it is Murkomen who was tagged as the next big thing, he for few weeks tried MutulaÂ´s big shoes BUT not for long, after publicly declaring that powerful forces in statehouse and in Bunge were keen on scuttling DEVOLUTION, the youthful senator is said to have been blackmailed to silence and an abrupt 180degree turn ensured!
In a well detailed opinion penned by the now MISSING Bogonko Bosire of JackalNews, it was alleged that President Uhuru and his deputy had vowed to teach the young senator some practical political lesson, it was Jackalnews that even had the audacity to link Murkomen to a sexual scandal, whether real or imagined by the dark forces it seemed the strategy worked!
The young senator has turned back against the people, against the agents of change, against DEVOLUTION and this weekend the honorable senator got baptism of fire, he took his juvinile politics of sycophancy to a funeral in Kericho.
The residents of Kericho who were hoodwinked into voting for Jubilee have since realized that Jubilee is nothing but a gang of five, the five powerful people are not even elected, they dont LIKE or even have time for deputy President(son of the soil)and that is their problem!SHOCKING?
So, Murkomen went ahead to feed the Kericho farmers with two cents worth of sycophancy and propaganda, hehehe what happened next is what his MASTER once said happens only in movies- the tea farmers mourning the area farmer number one mzee Tirop could hear non of his shenanigans, they told him to take his shit back to Mt Kenya BUT if he MUST spew it then should take it to North Rift- at least in Elgeyo Marakwet County he most likely got people like his mother, aunties, uncles and Nephews who may stomach the shit!
Now , the good senator is in trouble, the Hague based Deputy President- a day scholar at the International Criminal Court has distanced himself from the young senator, the born again Ruto is said to have wondered loud WHAT `Onesi` as he fondly calls him was thinking criticizing the father of DEVOLUTION before a devolution minded farmers.
In summary Murkomen is under intense stress, for a man who did his LLM in South Africa and spent two months in American libraries to be caught in such pesa nane shit is beyond comprehension to DP Ruto- ICC accused, an Msc and Bsc 1st class honours and father of many!
Many are wondering if Danny Mungatana is MurkomenÂ´s mentor, with such a role model, the young senator is likely to get a second wife from Muranga, get bankrupt and BOOM- extinct from politics!
Murkomen has been told to carry his own cross, whatever that means only Ruto knows!
