Senator Kipchumba Murkomen now says Deputy President William Ruto has to exhaust all tactics available to win Luos votes in 2022. In a statement, the Elgeyo Marakwet Senator explains that Ruto has to do it as it is done by President Uhuru Kenyatta. The majority leader in the Senate insists that the easiest way to win Luos votes is by giving their political godfathers imaginary positions in the government.
“President Uhuru Kenyatta has proved that a government can work with the once noisy opposition. Our camp has no option but to emulate what President Kenyatta has done.Dr. Ruto must work with the Nyanza region to neutralize the election hooligans” Senator Kipchumba Murkomen added in a statement.
On 5th January 2018, Kipchumba Murkomen urged that the Luo community is being used by politicians like tissue paper. The Senator said he could not understand how a community that is deeply betrayed in politics becomes a sycophant to the same people who are their oppressors.”A great scholar once said the oppressor and the oppressed will both be punished in the end. The oppressor will be punished for oppressing the oppressed while the oppressor will be punished for allowing the oppressor to oppress him” he said in a statement.
The Elgeyo Marakwet Senator has linked Nyanza politicians to black magic insisting that he cannot understand how they buy loyalty from the Luo community.”The Odinga family has colonized an innocent community for decades. The Nyanza region should wake up from slumber and demand for independence from this house” he added.
Some Jubilee politicians have criticized Odinga’s entry into Jubilee. Those affiliated to the Deputy President believe ODM came to make a house crumble. Oscar Sudi said in a statement recently that the handshake is meant to undermine the Deputy President and kick him out of the Jubilee party. He promised to give ODM a hard time in Jubilee dismissing the handshake as total conmanship.
Kipchumba Murkomen has urged opposition chief, Raila Odinga to retire from active politics saying that it will be unnecessary for a statesman to be defeated in an election more than four times. He has also criticized The Orange Democratic Movement for associating the Deputy President to any corruption threatening to take legal action soon.”The Deputy President was a saint back in their party now they want us to assume he is responsible for the mess being perpetrated by their own” he said.
Murkomen has warned opposition politicians for using divisive politics to win sympathy from the public. He has urged Kenyans to support Ruto’s bid for Presidency as he is the only politician who has the key to uniting the country after Uhuru Kenyatta.
