Murkomen and Kihika respond to Irungu Kang’ata
Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen and Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika have responded to senate majority whip Irungu Kang’ata over the deadlock in the house.
The formula by the commission for revenue allocation(CRA) has been a threat to the senate and is actually causing division in the handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his counterpart Raila Odinga.
For long, counties have been getting funds from the 316 billion funds resulting into a loss for marginalized counties.
This is what Murkomen had to say.
“As the Majority Leader, I did my best to ensure the Jubilee agenda succeeds in the Senate. I also rendered my honest advice to the President and the party on what I thought was best for the country. We were removed unprocedural to pave way for “President’s trusted handshake men”.
“Now I hear Senator Kang’ata saying the success of third-generation formula for the allocation of revenue will only succeed if Murkomen takes the lead. I am but a loyal backbencher ready to be led. I am waiting for our Party PG to meet and give us instructions. So far, I am listening to both sides,” noted Murkomen.
Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika on the other hand could not understand why the Senate was struggling with the numbers when it came to the proper formula for revenue allocation because it had the numbers during her ousting and that of Murkomen and Kindiki.
“I want Irungu Kang’ata to tell us why he is unable to do what he did to get the numbers in Senate when removing Kindiki, Murkomen, and myself from our seats. Why can’t he do the same to get numbers to pass the Bill?” Susan stated.
Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria had this to say,
“Senator Kipchumba Murkomen, Senator Kithure Kindiki, and Senator Susan Kihika never lost a single government agenda in the House. Right now Senator James Aggrey Bob Orengo is running circles around Kang’ata, Poghisio, and Kamar,” he explained
