Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen on Monday warned netizens against sharing with him a video of his shoulder injury.

The Senate Majority Leader suffered the injury during football match between the Senate and the Kitui County Assembly last week but was attended to by doctors.

In the video that went viral on Monday, Murkomen can be seen writhing in pain as he asks his teammates not to touch his shoulder.

Through a tweet, he described the extent of his injury and told netizens not to share the video with him.

“Last week I fell and tore my Coracoclavicular ligament during soccer game. Even in my pain and having realized my collarbone was nearly protruding, I managed to protect self from the dangers of poor First Aid,” he wrote.

Adding: “I got to Hosp, Surgery done and now I’m fine. Don’t share video with me…enjoy if you must,” he wrote.

A section of netizens made fun of the senator but Senior Counsel Ahmednasir Abdullahi jumped to his defense, albeit in a sarcastic way.

“I think it is gross/in bad taste and even callous to make fun of a badly injured amateur football player (Sen Murkomen) in great pain and discomfort...” said Ahmednasir.

The senator’s comments about poor first aid did not go down well with some of his followers who asked him to work and ensure hospitals are well-equipped.

“Why do you Mhesh say “poor 1st Aid”? It’s only that you had the capacity of deciding who to treat you. A common mwanachi who comes from your village will even pray that the 1st Aid will be provided. I don’t know what point you were trying to put across in this tweet,” wrote one Twitter user.

“Did you call it " poor first aid " cheei I hope the way you rushed yourself to the better hospital for operation is the same way you'd do to poor Kenyans. SMH,” added another.
