The Elgeyo Marakwet senator Hon Kipchumba Murkomen caused a spur online after he took to his twitter account a statement sarcastically barring his Tangatanga counterpart Susan Kihika from using a "phrase" she constantly used while in an interview at JKLive. The Nakuru senator was taking on Wajir Women representative Hon Fatma Gedi in a debate moderated by Jeff Koinange.
The "iron lady" as referred to by Jeff during the interview thrashed on the woman rep mercilessly taking advantage of both her calmness and proficiency in English. Kihika was heard quite a number of times calling Gedi out for her 'below-level reasoning' using the word "preposterous".
"Hon Gedi our senator likes using the term preposterous, what does she mean?" Jeff Koinange asked at one point in the debate, a question that took the women representative to a moment of silence.
The Elgeyo marakwet senator with a sence of humour warned the Nakuru senator never to use the word preposterous again. According to him, that word brought a tensed moment of silence during the Wednesday night's JKLive as her opponent found difficulties in understanding his well versed grammar.
"Senator Susan Kihika don’t use the word preposterous again. You almost gave your counterpart an heart attack!" the former majority leader of the senate sarcastically tweeted.
Some kenyans joining the conversation laughed off the women representative saying she is only a villager who did not find an advantage of visiting group of schools like Susan Kihika.
Below are some of the comments by kenyans:
