The Only Stake That Has Bound Kipchumba Murkomen To President Uhuru Kenyatta

The Senate majority leader and Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen, had made a bold declaration during the burial of the mother of Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua in Nyeri County.

The majority leader of the Senate, had declared that Jubilee's arbiter had invested in President Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta, and parting ways with the head of state will forever remain a mistery.

According to Kipchumba, members of the Jubilee party are inseparable from their leaders.

However, Kipchumba had said that the investment he had put in president Uhuru Kenyatta and the Party of Jubilee, is so colossal and he wanted to tell 'wale wa mpango wa kando' (those imposing themselves onto the president) who think that they would harvest where they did not plant that chances of separation with Jubilee members and their leader Uhuru Kenyatta are zero.

However, Murkomen argued that they had put their own political investment of more than a decade on him, and no one can lecture them to depart from him.

He went on to disparage those dovetailing themselves to Kenyatta, repudiating to speak on his behalf and advice him to part ways with members of his party. He told them that they had to blueprint.

"Uhuru himself cannot leave us. If he moves into another direction through a corner, we would move with him. Nyeri people are you listening to me? We are not parting ways with President Uhuru and we are not moving out of Jubilee. Those are our shares and our stake, and we must reap that stake in 2022.The stake is not going to change. So if someone is planning for Deputy president William Ruto, Majority leader of the Senate Kipchumba Murkomen, Kimani Ichungwa and Moses Kuria to dislocate from Jubilee, or disagree with Uhuru should make new and probable plans." Murkomen affirmed.

However, at the same function, William Ruto adored reports that president Kenyatta had been looking forward to extend his presidential rule past 10 years, arguing that the head of state would bow out after the next General Election. 

However, the debate on Kenyatta's retirement has waged on for a while as allies to the deputy president had contradict AU envoy Raila Odinga, president Kenyatta and their allies on the antagonistic issue.

Moreover, COTU secretary general Francis Atwoli has stated many times that, president Uhuru Kenyatta is young and can stay in power after 2022. This remark has always riled Ruto's allies.
