Monday July 8, 2019-Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen had some unpleasant words for President Uhuru Kenyatta over the weekend after the murder of two of his close allies.
Speaking at the burial of Benson Kiptire, Murkomen indicted Uhuru and his Government for the death of Kiptire whose body was found dumped at Kamatira Forest, West Pokot County with a head injury.
"Benson is lying there because it is a demonstration of a failure of a system of Government that was supposed to support the rule of law.”
"Benson is an indictment to the government to which I serve and to which I campaigned for. If another Government was in power, Benson would not be in that casket. It's painful but it's true," Murkomen spoke.
"My message to President Uhuru Kenyatta and am very clear in my mind, security will not be managed in the country through assassination and extrajudicial killings, it won't solve any problem.
"We should not allow people who run our security system in the country to accept a procedure that is a shortcut to solving problems; it is not going to be right. This is not a way to run this nation," the senator declared.
Before his death, Benson was Murkomen's PA, serving as the County Liason Officer.
He was abducted on June 22 by people who identified themselves as police officers before turning out dead.
