Senate majority leader Onesimus Kipchumba Murkomen almost stopped the BBI reggae at the Bomas of Kenya on Wednesday afternoon, as the Tangatanga allied lawmaker decried of seclusion of his political divide.
The Elgeyo-Marakwet senator was agitated by the event moderator Junet Mohammed in what he termed as deliberate marginalization of leaders allied to Deputy President William Ruto.
“Your Excellency, we must have an honest discussion here. Even how Junet you are running the program we must have an honest discussion. Your Excellency it will be a lie for me to leave this stage without saying that this program has been scooed. This is not about of politics of seclusion of other people,” he said amid jeers from a section of the crowd.
The lawmaker however could not tone down as he went further in his agitation and it took the intervention of the chairman of the BBI committee Yusuf Haji to calm the situation.
“Tuwe na hehima. Rais wetu yako hapa. BBI itapita. Tuoeni nafasi aseme yake, sisi tutafanya yetu,” pleaded the former Minister of Defence.
Murkomen continued with his submission but could not avoid lashing out at the jeers at the end of it all, “Kwendeni Huko”, he said.
“I demand the right to be heard. And I demand my views to be heard in the republic of Kenya like every other citizen of the republic of Kenya…..Kwendeni huko.”
Suba North MP and program controller Junet manager could not however shy away at taking a dig at Murkomen and his Tangatanga clique, eliciting laughter from the crowd.
“Your Excellence you know success has a lot of fathers, but failure is an orphan. This document is a success so everybody wants to be the father. That is why emotions are running high and people talking like this. Leo tuko hapa katika halfa ya BBI. Shida ambayo iko kwa serikali ya Jubilee hiyo watatatua kando yao. Sisi hatuko ndani. Hiyo ni yao hiyo,” he lashed.
