Since the election of Kipchumba Murkomen as the Senator of Elgeyo Marakwet, his stature in politics has grown steadily through the ranks in leadership nationally having served as the Chairperson of the Senate committee on Devolution and later as the Majority Leader of the Senate.
He has proved to be an articulate and charismatic politician who speaks out his mind in any occasion. His eloquence and enthusiasm has made political pundits to extrapolate his fast rising political stature to mean that he may be positioning himself to take over when Ruto’s time elapses in the Rift Valley politics. Though this may be early, it’s indicative due to the dynamics of politics in the country. But also, it may not be a walk in the park as there also exist senior politicians in the Rift Valley positioning themselves to lead the Kalenjin Nation, the likes of Charles Keter, Isaac Rutto and Gideon Moi.
