Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen attacked ODM party ahead of the slated by Kibra by-elections.

Through a tweet, Murkomen claimed that the move by the party to hold demonstrations on Wednesday was an indication of fear of losing during the scheduled contest.

The Jubilee party member remarked that the Raila Odinga led party was panicking as the big day drew close.

The bedroom is smoky long live the hustlers!” expressed Murkomen.


The lawmaker added that the party did not have to resolve to protests in order to have their case known.

According to the vocal Elgeyo Marakwet Senator, the problem could be handle by Raila instead of going to the IEBC offices.

“Bro under the handshake Baba can address your concerns quietly. Just talk to him. Wachana na IEBC!” noted the Elgeyo Marakwet leader.

Earlier, ODM through a press statement, had proclaimed that they would march to the IEBC offices at 9am due to the failure of the body to provide the party with voter register for Kibra Constituency.

“We want to notify the IEBC that we shall be marching to their offices tomorrow at in the morning. We shall not leave the said offices unless and until we are supplied with the official updated register to be used in the Kibra by-election.” read a part of the statement.

It argued that the Wafula Chebukati team had failed to observe the law as stipulated by the Elections Act (2015) even after they had written to the body three times.

“However, since then, no action has been taken the Commission with regard to our request. Instead, we have been subjected to a back and forth game, being engaged in a song of musical chairs and tossed left right and centre from one department to another.” continued a part of the statement.
