Elgeiyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has found himself on the wrong side with the Orange Democratic Party Communications Director Philip Etale for ‘making too much noise’ on social over the alleged murder plot to assassinate the Deputy President Willliam Ruto.
The obviously agitated Etale has gone forth to ask the Ruto’s close confidant, to present himself and report the information he has to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) instead of defending DP on social media account.
“Chief why are you bitter. Why can’t you volunteer the information you have to the
@DCI_Kenya if you really mean well for Dennis? Why make too much noise on social media yet you have the power & the oomph to present yourself before the DCI? Spare us this crap Bwana!” read Etale’s statement on Twitter.
Etale was responding to Murkomen’s allegations where he claimed that Denis Itumbi’s only mistake was forwarding the alleged fake letter to a WhatsApp group dubbed ‘Tanga Tanga’ and not drafting it as the charges have it.
So @OleItumbi was arrested for forwarding an alleged fake letter to a WhatsApp group dubbed “TangaTanga” ? How many people in this country forwarded that document? Will all the media houses that published the document be charged ?This is ridiculously moronic .

It is not the first time that Murkomen is defending Itumbi against his arrest. On Wednesday, he accused the DCI of trying to divert the public’s attention from the alleged meeting held at La Mada hotel by some of the cabinet secretaries through the arrest of Itumbi.
Murkomen questioned if there was a meeting that took place at La Mada, if the Permanent Secretary in charge of DCI indeed said Ruto must be stopped the same way Saitoti was, saying the authenticity of the allegations was more important than the letter itself.
Arrest of @OleItumbi is a strategy to divert attention from the La Mada meeting&plan.Was there a meeting?Did PS in charge of DCI say Ruto must be stopped Saitoti way?Who complained about assassination?And to who?The authenticity of the allegations is more important than a letter
