Kipchumba Murkomen Reacts To Uhuru's Long Speech, Reminds Him What He Forgot To Say

While addressing the country on the State of the Nation from Parliament buildings, President Kenyatta hinted on the possible revamping of the Building Bridges Initiative.

Birthed by the president and the Former Prime Minister, the duo believed that it was important for the country to adopt its recommendations so as to attain the famous constitutional moment.

"A constitutional moment does not resolve itself simply by being ignored. The need for political stabilisation is the most urgent task facing Kenya today and for this reason, I want to believe that that which didn't happen will happen (BBI)."- President Uhuru said.

Just like Aden Duale has alleged attack by Uhuru to the Judiciary in the BBI process, Marakwet senator Kipchumba Murkomen has also weighed in. He has commented on what president Kenyatta said on the fall of the BBI. Murkomen has faulted Kenyatta for attacking the Judiciary since it stopped the reggae, a move he justified by reading Article 1 (2) of the constitution.

However, Murkomen says the president failed to comment about Article 1(3) (c) which states that sovereign power is delagated to the Judiciary and independent tribunals.

" While mourning the demise of BBI and to justify his attack on the judiciary, the President read Art.1 (2) of the Constitution and skipped Art 1(3) (c) that stipulates that the sovereign power is delegated to the Judiciary and independent tribunals. " Murkomen said.
