Elgeyo marakwet senator Kipchumba Murkomen has bashed environment cabinet secretary Keriako tobiko and Rift Valley cordinator George Natembeya for plans to evict people from the Mau forest.
The senate Majority leader said that the two officials do not speak on behalf of the president and that he is the the known government official.
“I dare say that Keriako Tobiko should be called out for insubordinating the president & carrying out processes that have not been approved by the gov’t of Kenya.”

Kenyans reacted differently;
Someone share with Murkomen this clip, it appears he has forgotten who ordered the ongoing mau evictions pic.twitter.com/ySOWbxvG0Z

How I wish Murkomen would speak with the same vigour on the list billions meant to construct ARROR and KAMWERER dams https://t.co/mBVEFjf6B4

The Rift MPs competing to address the media from Parliament's media centre. After Kuttuny's presser, Murkomen has been told to rush to the same spot to counter. Heheheee, we are watching from a distance.

Now that Moses Kuria and Ferdinand Waititu are improving, I think we can now use Kipchumba Murkomen as the SI Unit of stupidity in Kenyan politics.

If Murkomen —in his small mind— thinks Keriako Tobiko is not acting on orders of the president why don’t he report the matter to Ruto to overturn the Mau eviction edict? I thought Ruto is more powerful than Tobiko.

They stay put in mau and face polis battons hunher and cold as you enjoy tea and sausage at kempisky…. Be real Murkomen. If you are serious get down there sleep in a tent and be with the guys there.
