Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen and Machakos Governor Dr Alfred Mutua accused each other of being corrupt in a vicious twitter war between the two leaders.

“I wish to inform Murkomen that I am not under any investigation by any agency. The DPP cleared me last year of any wrong doing and the false politically instigated accusations about vehicles are no more. I have never been corrupt and need no one’s protection. I am clean,” he said.
