Former Senate Majority Leader and Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen on Tuesday stated that it was possible for the government to re-open churches if more than 212 leaders were able to be hosted at State House.
He opined that the government of Kenya should be able to re-open churches in Kenya since, according to him, there had been over 212 people at State House today who convened for the Jubilee Parliamentary Group meeting held by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
According to the outspoken and high rising Senator, the 212 politicians who assembled today at State House showed that it is possible for churches, mosques, temples to be opened with similar protocols.
“212 politicians assembled today in SH to do their thing with masks and social distance. How is it impossible to open churches, mosques, temples etc with similar protocols” he noted.
He also took to social media to show photos of him looking ‘strong and healthy’, as he responded to critics and haters revealing the amount of weight they should wait to see hi lose.
In what was a jibe to his political opponents and haters, Murkomen posted the photos critiquing those who he alleges were saying that he has lost weight, following the recent political turmoils witnessed in Jubilee Party, with those leaders allied to the Deputy President, including him, being de-whipped of their positions.
He has now responded to those saying he has lost weight, telling them they are speaking soon.
“They have been saying Kipchumba oooh has lost this, Kipchumba oooh has lost that. Hold on people, you are speaking too soon, I still have to lose 5 Kilograms” he said.
