Political war of words was on Friday, September 4 witnessed after Environment CS Keriako Tobiko and Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen got personal with each other over an emotive issue.

The Senator termed the CS as a non-performer, adding that he had no moral authority to lecture DP Ruto as he is just a small person in the Jubilee government unlike.

"Mr Tobiko you are a mere clerk in Jubilee government. You forget so fast that you became a CS because the President was trying to get rid of you from the office of DPP. You have no moral authority to lecture your boss the DP even if he is being molested by his boss. First, try to be MCA," Murkomen wrote on Twitter.

Murkomen also accused the CS of using State resources to campaign for his sister Kajiado East MP Peris Tobiko.

"While I understand Tobiko’s right to protect the sister, I wonder why he is using state resources including, CSs Mutahi Kagwe and Fred Matiang'i to promote nepotism?” he posed.

"Has President Kenyatta lost control of his cabinet? CSs insulting his Deputy and each campaigning for themselves and their relatives. Terrible," he added.

On Friday evening, CS Tobiko responded to Murkomen accusing him and DP Ruto of disrespecting President Uhuru Kenyatta and other leaders including CSs.

"Murkomen thinks he is the only who knows all kinds of insults. He insults the president and other leaders. He should respect the president, the same applies to his boss (Ruto). He lacks decorum," Tobiko said.

CS Tobiko maintained that DP Ruto is also Uhuru's clerk and so he should respect him the same way other leaders respect him.

"His boss (Ruto) is a clerk of the president. The deputy president is a clerk, he should be a clerk. I expect them to respect the president the same way I respect him. Respect cuts both ways, it is a two-way traffic. So if you don't respect Kenya, you don't deserve to be respected by anybody," he added.

The CS also threatened to extend eviction of settlers to Embobut Forest where he claimed Murkomen's father and family lives.

"During Mau restoration, he incited settlers not to move out. He lives in a forest called Embobut with his father. Murkomen, start packing, the forest does not belong to you," he warned.

Responding to the CS' remarks, Murkomen said;

"We have a CS who is mentally deranged. Just because of one tweet he has exploded and now promising to revenge against me and my father.
