Monday May 18, 2020 – An outspoken Kalenjin community Governor has welcomed the changes President Uhuru Kenyatta made to the Senate Jubilee leadership, saying that those kicked out had publicly disrespected the party leader.
Speaking on Monday, Elgeyo Marakwet Governor, Alex Tolgos, said that it is wrong for members of a party to show open disdain for their leader while they still expect to lead the Government’s agenda in the August House.
Last week, Senate Majority Leader, Kipchumba Murkomen, and Majority Whip Susan Kihika were removed from their lucrative posts in a parliamentary group meeting chaired by President Kenyatta at State House, Nairobi.
Tolgos said the two deserved to be axed for failing to know that Uhuru is the party leader and Head of State.
“I am not a senator.”
“The decision to make the changes were made by them but what I know is we only have one party leader whom we should always respect.”
“You cannot always be at cross purposes with what the party leader says and expect to push his agenda in the Senate,” Tolgos stated.
