Wednesday June 10, 2020 – Elgeyo Marakwet Senator, Kipchumba Murkomen, has castigated Gender Cabinet Secretary, Margaret Kobia, for defending Kirinyaga Governor, Anne Waiguru, who was impeached by Kirinyaga MCAs on Tuesday.
Kobia, in her statement to Kenyans, termed the impeachment as an ‘indicator that some do not value strong women leadership.’
The CS said Waiguru’s impeachment during the Covid19 global pandemic is a major injustice to women leadership.
Kobia demanded justice and due process to be followed in Waiguru’s impeachment.
But some Kenyans led by Murkomen were an unhappy lot asking her to stop mixing gender and alleged graft issues.
Murkomen said that Kobia’s statement displays hypocrisy that is in President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Cabinet which has been preaching daily on how to eradicate corruption in the society.
“For you people to understand the magnitude of the hypocrisy that runs deep in the country, this lady sits in the Cabinet and she is the appointee of the President who is “fighting” corruption and who is In charge of the Senate. Is as simple as that. Now you know what next,” Murkomen said on Wednesday.
