Senate Majority Leader and Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has commented on his storming out of Kinoru Stadium together accompanied by Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria.

In a post on Twitter, Murkomen whose rousing speech trended on social media seemed to relish the attention he got after a sizeable number of wananchi exited the stadium after the two left.

The majority leader explained he left for another function and apologised that wananchi followed him out of the stadium.


“It isn’t true that I stormed out of the Kinoru BBI meeting.Moses Kuria who gave me lift was leaving for another engagement.

I had no choice but to follow.I also had parental duties in my children’s school.I apologize that wanachi followed us out of the stadium. We intended Not”

Upon invitation to address the rally, Murkomen laced his words with steel, hitting at the proponents of the BBI led by event’s chief guest ODM leader Raila Odinga, for casting the process as the solution for all problems facing Kenya.

“Viongozi walichaguliwa kusuluhisha shida za Wakenya, Tusidanyanye wananchi ati kwamba tunangojea BBI tubadilishe Kenya,” said Murkomen.

Murkomen, a staunch supporter of the Deputy President also thanked the speakers at the rally for steering clear of tainting the DP “as it had been norm in the previous rallies.”

Kuria, who was not recognized by Kieni MP Kanini Kega, who oversaw introduction of MPs also chided the organisers saying their leaving the meeting in a huff should not have been a concern.

“In a meeting attended by 100 MPs, 16 Senators and over 10 Governors, why is it a big deal that just one MP and one Senator excused themselves to attend to other duties? After all the session for MPs and Senators to speak was over. Ni nini makasiriko jameni?,” wrote Kuria on Facebook.

The two legislators together with their counterpart, Meru Senator Mithika Linturi, remained standing as organisers got a sitting space for them. This is after arriving late for the meeting that brought together all the governors and other opinion shapers from the Mt Kenya counties.
