For a long time now, Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen who is deputy president William Ruto's closest ally has not been attending tangatanga rallies.
This even led to speculations that he has left UDA, something that he denied when he came back from the US last week.
It now seems that the former Senate leader of Majority is keen on observing the Covid-19 protocols announced by the presidency to curb the spread of the virus.
This is after he attacked some leaders for holding rallies whereby they pull huge crowds hence endangering lives.
Murkomen challenged president Uhuru kenyatta to immediately lift the Nationwide curfew urging him to stop hypocrisy in the fight aggainst Corona virus.
He noted that it was not right for the president to impose a curfew on ordinary citizens while he (Uhuru) and other politicians are conducting Political rallies across the country.
According to murkomen, the curfew only benefits Political elite more than the common mwananchi.
“The people who are suffering are more than the people benefiting from the curfew. We are urging President Uhuru Kenyatta to stop the hypocrisy,” Murkomen said as quoted by people daily.
Adding: “There are rallies all over today; Raila has a rally in Eldoret; Raila and Uhuru had a rally in Kibera; Deputy President has a rally in Mombasa.”
He told the president to stop fooling kenyans that Covid-19 only spreads at night and not during the day asking him to lift the nighttime curfew Immediately.
His statement comes barely two weeks after the government extended the nighttime curfew for 30 days.
