Elgeyo Marakwet senator Kipchumba Murkomen has bashed President Uhuru Kenyatta over what he termed as his ‘campaigning’ yet he was retiring in few months time.

“President Uhuru Kenyatta will be the first president to go on a campaign for retirement. What I have been asking myself is who is he competing with to go on retirement.” He said.

He asked President Kenyatta to tone down and give other candidates an opportunity to campaign the same way former President Mwai Kibaki gave him a chance to campaign while he was still Deputy Prime minister.

Murkomen is an ally of Deputy President William Ruto who is seeking to replace President Kenyatta in 2022.

The once tight bromance between President Kenyatta and his deputy has died and what is left is a shell of a party the two tirelessly worked to bring together in 2017.

What began as simple contrasts of assessment have snowballed into an out and out political war that has stressed the connection between the nation’s best two pioneers.

With the Ruto pivot straightforwardly blaming Uhuru for having demolished the nation’s economy, the President seems to have chosen to seal his inheritance without Ruto’s contribution.

Last week, the head of state asked his deputy to resign instead of double speak about the government that he is part and parcel of.

The Head of State launched a scathing attack on his deputy, saying if he (Ruto) has problems with the government, then he is at liberty to resign.

The President told off Dr. Ruto accusing him of doublespeak to divide Kenyans for selfish gains.

DP Ruto in a rejoinder would state that he was the only person in the current political arena who was more loyal to the President.

“Some of these guys lecturing us now have never supported President Kenyatta! No one has been loyal to the president than me.” Ruto said while in Nyandarua county.

Political pundits believe that the latest utterances from both President Kenyatta’s and DP Ruto’s side is a sign of a more troubled ‘marriage” between the two.
