Twitter is on fire following Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen post over the construction of Thwake dam in Makueni county.
In a tweet, Elgeyo Marakwet Senator posted a photo of a bush which he claimed to be the site of the stalled Thwake dam in Makueni county where Sh7.8 billion was paid in advance.
He wondered how far investigations by Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) had reached on alleged misappropriation of funds for the project.
“This is the site of Thwake Dam in Makueni County where 7.8B advance payment was made 3 years ago. How far is the @DCI_Kenya with investigations? We will not allow discrimination as long as we are still in a country called Kenya,” he tweeted.
The tweet did not go down well with his Makueni counterpart Mutula Kilonzo Junior.
Mutula fired back by saying the picture Murkomen had posted was not the site of the dam.
“I am embarrassed to inform you that picture on your post is not the site of the dam. The Thwake dam is at the confluence of two rivers – Athi River and Thwake River. I thought you should know,” Mutula said.
Murkomen post extracted heated debate between the two lawmakers.
