BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,27TH NOV 2019-Elgeyo Marakwet senator Kipchumba Murkomen was on Wednesday heckled as he presented his views at the Bomas of Kenya during the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report unveiling to the public.
Murkomen was booed by members of the public present at the report unveiling event.
Murkomen who the senate majority leader was irked by the programme coordinators especially the MC Junet Mohammed for apparently leaving out leaders whose views differed.
“We must have an honest opinion, even the way Junet is running the program is unfair. This program was to hear about other leaders opinion,” Murkomen said amid jeers.
“To build an honest Kenya we must be able to put other leaders ideas on the table. There is no way I’ll be told to sanitize this situation. I demand to be heard,” he added.
An irate Murkomen declined to take his seat insisting that he must be heard.
BBI task force chair Yusuf Haji then tried to calm down the delegates asking that they give the legislator time to express himself.
“Mpeeni uyu time aseme yake(Give him time),” Haji said.
Taking back the microphone, Murkomen thanked the President for the opportunity to lead in the senate majority position.
“I dare say if it was not for your leadership your excellency I would not be the Majority Leader.We want the same opportunities for even the minority groups not opportunities clustered for the big boys.”
“God bless Kenya. Kwendeni huko,” the infuriated ,Murkomen remarked .
