Monday June 8, 2020 – Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has lashed out at President Uhuru Kenyatta for trying to return the country to the dark old days.
Over the last two years, Uhuru has been ruling with an iron fist even ignoring court orders and undermining his deputy, William Ruto, and Chief Justice David Maraga.
In protest to Uhuru’s dictatorial behavior, Murkomen said the 2010 constitution did not allow the President to wield such dangerous powers of assuming the roles of President, Deputy President, Chief Justice, Attorney General and even Governors of both Kiambu and Nairobi Counties.
“The 2010 Constitution did not anticipate that one man can be the President, Deputy President, CIC, Independent Commissions, DPP, IG, DCI, Chief Justice, Judge, Magistrate, Speaker Senate and NA, MP, Governor, Governor Nairobi & Kiambu, media owner, editor for all media houses all in one,” Murkomen said.
The Senator wrote immediately after CJ Maraga laid blame on Uhuru for the delay in appointing 41 new Judges proposed by the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) and continuous disobedience of court decrees on the part of the Government.
