Just hours after President Uhuru Kenyatta met governors from the Rift Valley region over the incoming Nakuru BBI meeting, Nyeri town MP Ngunjiri Wambugu has taken on Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen.
Through his Facebook page, the vocal legislator took swipes at Murkomen together with other Tanga-tanga leaders from the Rift Valley alleging the group meant no good for the people from Mt.Kenya region.
The Kieleweke affiliated MP accused Murkomen of always thriving to divide their region, especially during the recent BBI meeting in Meru, where he alleged the senator rubbished the meeting terming it a waste of time.
“Tunafichiwa whitez wanaharibu kwetu Wanachenga kwao (they are dividing our home while busy building their own) Kipchumba is the guy who came to Meru to say #BBI is upuz- that it’s a political process to isolate his Boss; that it can’t solve anything is everything that’s required to help Kenyans is in place, etc,” posted Ngunjiri on Facebook.
“He categorically told Mt Kenya that #BBI ‘nî gutee’ ‘#BBI ni Ukora’ ‘Resist #BBI’, loudly cheered by a mob he had mobilized through some local Meru leaders. Then he walked out – with the mob and some misplaced Mt Kenya leaders. Today – when #BBI is about his region – the #BBI process has his full endorsement, participation & support. Here he says that the “BBI is the real deal’ – ‘that they will rally behind it and present all issues affecting their people’ ” added Ngunjiri.
Ngunjiri’s rant seemed to have been irked by a meeting convened by the president together with Rift Valley governors at Statehouse on Tuesday.
Shortly after the meeting, Murkomen took to his twitter account to embrace it, saying the Nakuru BBI meeting will be unique from the rest as it will involve all the leaders from the region.
“The Rift Valley BBI rally will be held on 21st of March 2020 in Nakuru and it will be different from all others. We have agreed that all leaders from all the 11 counties will participate fully without party factions or mini-factions. Each county will hold their consultation…” twitted Murkomen.
..and we shall converge in Eldoret on 19th March to have a harmonized document for the larger Rift Valley Region.Consequently we shall have a consultation meeting for Elgeyo Marakwet in Iten this Friday 14th March 2020. This process has my full endorsement,participation& support.
