Senator Kipchumba Murkomen picked to chair law review team

By Roselyne Obala | June 27th 2015

The Jubilee government is headed for turbulent times following heightened push by senators for constitutional change.

Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen, a close ally of President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto, has now been tasked with the mandate to spearhead the process to amend the Constitution to grant the Senate more powers.

Murkomen will chair the select committee on Legal and Constitutional Review, and he will be deputised by Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Junior.

The committee will audit the law and table a report in the House, from which a bill to amend the Constitution will be drafted.

The legislator said the committee will seek to safeguard the independence of crucial devolution institutions under threat and enhance accountability.
