Senator Kipchumba Murkomen Steals The Show During Agnes Tirop's Burial as he Lecturers Uhuru & Raila

Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen was among the top Rift Valley lawmakers who graced Kenyan Olympian Agnes Tirop's burial on Saturday October 23 at her parents home in Nandi County.

Murkomen who is a die hard supporter of Deputy President William Ruto took the better part of his speech in lecturing President Uhuru Kenyatta for failing to complete the stadiums in the region after his fall out with Ruto in 2018.

The Jubilee Senator claimed that the region would have been the most improved in terms of stadia development owing to the champions who come from the region, and that Uhuru has failed them by focusing on the handshake and BBI with his brother Raila Odinga.

The vibrant leader dismissed Raila's Azimio La Umoja stating that he should help Uhuru in accomplishing the remaining part of his term, with focus on the stadiums before Ruto takes over in 2022.

He went on to assure that once Ruto wins the seat next year, he will personally advocate for completion and construction of new stadia to ensure that athletes have a suitable training facilities for their exercises.

'I want to assure you we will make it. The incoming government is not trial, it will be made up of hustlers, and I am confident that we will be in the government,' said Murkomen attracting cheers from the mourners.

Tirop succumbed to injuries reportedly inflicted by her husband Ibrahim Rotich.
