Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has responded to a question on how long the Deputy President can take to realize he can't be President issuing a contentious rejoinder.
According to Senator Kipchumba Murkomen, he has asserted that on the question "on how long will it take for DP Ruto to realise he cannot be president?" then it is a matter of changing the conversation.
The Senator has explained that just the same way the second in Command has changed the conversation from that of power positions to empowering the lives of Kenyans through the mkokoteni, wheelbarrows and bodaboda, then it also requires somebody who can change the conversation too.
"It took Ruto for the President, Raila and the entire country including yourself to discuss matters mkokoteni, wheelbarrows, bodaboda and all issues of Hustlers. Currently, the President is in Pumwani to support Bodaboda owners. Why? Because someone changed the conversation," Kipchumba Murkomen has replied.
Kenyans have however reacted to Kipchumba Murkomen remarks penning down mixed-reactions. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.
Here are some of the reactions;
Kassim: He changed the conversation for self-interest but the president has changed it for the betterment of our youths. Ruto will never be president #NeverAgain.
Nesterious: It is laughable when you compare what H.E the President is doing for bodabodas to what your team is doing in the name of Empowerment.
One, if you followed closely on the approaches being advanced at Pumwani, they are RECTIFYING a sector then empowering them for sustenance.
What H.E. the Deputy President is doing is simply clogging up an already choking sector. It is simple economics, you resolve the issues of a sector first then progressively grow it, otherwise, it becomes pointless even if you 'empower' 1 million youth with free bodabodas/mkokotenis.
Maureen: I am not saying BBI is a bad document but can someone please make me understand how the position of a Prime Minister and his two deputies, working at the mercy of the president, will solve the "inclusivity" problem at the executive. Having a real debate will help Kenyans.
Maverick: The DP is part of the government or does he want medals for doing what he ought to be doing for the people of Kenya? @kipmurkomen
What I read from this rant is a feeling of disillusionment because the issue of bodaboda and Mkokoteni has been normalised. It is no longer special.
