Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has asserted that he saved the Interior Cabinet Secretary (CS) Fred Matiang` i from the burden of the Ruaraka land saga.
While on December 1, the vocal Senator said that he used his position as the majority leader in the senate-house to defend the name of the CS from the land saga that placed his job opportunity at stake
In his statement, the Senator stated that it was unfortunate that the CS had forgotten the goodwill from him and that Matiang`i is ow carelessly lecturing Deputy President William Ruto allies.
You can even go and check the Senate’s Hansard, you will find that I saved him from that case. I did my best and defended your name. This is because I remembered that we had come from far as colleagues…doing consultancy jobs before he became CS.It is unfortunate that after landing this job, he has become arrogant and he now thinks he can lecture us in whatever way he wants,” said Murkomen.
“Myself and Kibicho were given this work by President Uhuru Kenyatta…we love this work and we enjoy working with each other. I must, however, set the record clear that we are not politicians and we are not going to entertain monkey business from some people.We were given work by Uhuru. If he says we turn right, we submit to that order and we follow that path until he issues another command,” said Matiang’i.
