Kipchumba Murkomen during the burial blamed President Uhuru Kenyatta’s administration for the murder of Kiptire.
Senator Murkomen who had earlier dismissed reports that Kiptire’s disappearance was not politically-instigated has called on friends to pray for the family.
“Dear Friends, I have received the news that our friend and brother Benson Kiptire was murdered in the most bizarre and heinous manner. We are all in utter shock. Let’s pray for his wife, children and ailing mother,” said Murkomen.
But now he turned all his guns on the government claiming they are responsible for the brutal murder of Kiptire. Murkomen asked Uhuru to take quick action against extra-judicial killings.
“Security will not be managed in the country through assassinations and extra-judicial killings,” he stated
The government of Jubilee Assassinated my Personal Assitant. The Era off assassinations is back"~MurkomenNOTE: He has never condemned assassination of Msando and Jacob Juma. Let the government eat her own children.

His disappearance was reported by Marakwet East MP Kangogo Bowen on his Facebook page where he urged residents to help in tracing Mr Kiptire.
“Dear all, I am told the former Kapyego MCA Benson Kiptire was taken away by unknown people in Land Cruiser Prado KBW with four men onboard at his shop at Rock Centre in Eldoret at around 12 noon today (Friday)” he said.
