Murkomen Indirectly Insults Raila, Immediately Gets a Savage Answer

Three of the nation's biggest political figures are not as intelligent as many Kenyans would think, Elgeyo Marakwet senator Kipchumba Murkomen has alleged.

He says that ODM leader Raila Odinga, his Wiper counterpart Kalonzo Musyoka and Musalia Mudavadi (ANC) are not intelligent, judging by how they have been conducting themselves lately.

He argues that had they been clever, they should have used President Uhuru Kenyatta's calls for rotational presidency to maximize on their national support by being silent to at least appear as nationalists.

But by coming out to endorse the suggestion, he says, the three have made the debate dry up quickly, which is not something a clever politician should have done.

"I Just concluded that Raila, Kalonzo and Mudavadi are not intelligent. After Uhuru talked about rotation of Presidency, they should gone silent and at least pretend to be nationalist. Their comments on the matter extinguished the insignificant value they would have milked from it," he says in a tweet.

Its worth noting that the opposite word for intelligent is naive or nonthinking, making the remark an indirect insult to the three.

The remark, however, has been countered by Raila ally and politician Silas Jakakimba, who bas sought to know when exactly the leaders or any of them hired the vocal lawmaker to act as their advisor.

He equated Murkomen to a man begging the three leaders to listen to him, adding that it is openly visible that he is out to mislead them, since they are all opponents of Deputy President William Ruto, whose ally he (Murkomen) is.

"I’ve never been aware that you finally landed the Advisory job you applied for with the 3 Leaders. If it happens that you didn’t, and they remain competitors of your Principal, it is hypocritical to pretend to be BEGGING to offer advice detrimental to Ruto. Enjoy your 4Oklok tea," said Jakakimba in a tweet.

Uhuru, while addressing mourners at Mudavadi's home in Sabatia on Saturday, said that there is need to hand over the presidency to another community, after being enjoyed for too long by the Kikuyu and Kalenjin tribes.

Raila on Monday endorsed this, with forces allied to Mudavadi and Kalonzo bashing Ruto for opposing the proposal on Sunday.
