The normal business of Senate proceedings were interrupted for a while in yesterday, when the Senators allied to the Deputy President William Ruto questioned the presence of Jubilee Party Vice Chairman David Murathe in parliament.

Murathe surprised the Ruto allies who claimed that he was not supposed to be parliament during its session, because he is not an elected or nominated member of the Senate hence not eligible to appear there.
Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei and his counterpart from Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchuma Murkomen, raised their voices to question Murathe's presence.
"Is it in order Mr Speaker for Cherargei to be addressing strangers in this House. I thought when we are debating, we are only allowed to address the Speaker and fellow honourable members. All other strangers in this House, whatever they may be are not relevant to debates in the Parliament,' said Murkomen.
Senator Moses Wetangula however, dismissed their claims saying that there was no need for 'tangatanga' allies to attack Murathe because of their personal issues with him.
