Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has vowed to oppose any attempts to remove Murang’a Senator Irungu Kang’ata as the Senate Majority Whip.
Murkomen said in a tweet that they will not allow any attempts to remove Kang’ata from his position, after his leaked letter to President Kenyatta addressing the poor reception of the BBI Bill in the Mt Kenya region.
He added that they will focus on the removal of none members from the Jubilee Party instead and replace them with Party members.
“If Jubilee Party Leadership calls for a meeting to remove Majority Whip @HonKangata we shall attend the meeting & vehemently oppose his ejection. Instead we shall remove none Party members & replace with Party members. It doesn’t matter what he did to @susankihika & I, We shall oppose” Murkomen tweeted.
Kang’ata has admitted that the licked letter addressed to President Kenyatta is authentic and apologized, stating that he was not responsible for leaking the letter to the public.
“Kindly, though the letter dated 30th December is authentic, I didn’t give it to the media. Someone else who had been copied did. I apologise for that. With the benefit of hindsight, I should have copied no one else. Trust substantive issues raised in the letter will be remedied” read Kang’ata’s tweet.
