MURKOMEN tells UHURU that Kenya is not a dictatorship following the arrest of Emurua Dikir MP, JOHANNA NGENO, and others - Jubilee is in tatters

Wednesday September 4, 2019 - Elgeyo Marakwet Senator, Kipchumba Murkomen, has castigated the Jubilee Government over the arrest of Emurua Dikir MP, Johanna Ngeno.

Ngeno was arrested on Tuesday alongside two MCAs after protesting against the eviction of people from Mau Forest following an order by the Government.

Sharing his thoughts about the arrest of lawmakers, Murkomen, who is also the Majority Leader in the Senate, accused the police of violating basic constitutional rights, arguing that the three did nothing wrong while protesting against evictions.

He warned that Kenya is not a police state where police abuse their powers by harassing people executing their constitutional mandate.

"There was/ is no moral or legal basis for arresting or even charging Hon. Johana Ngeno and the MCAs.

“They were going about performing their constitutional duties.”

“The police must not abuse their powers.”

“We are a constitutional democracy not a police state or a dictatorship,” Murkomen said.

Ng’eno and the MCAs will be arraigned in court and charged with incitement among other charges.
