Rarieda MP Otiende Amollo on Tuesday appeared to take a dig at a section of Jubilee legislators who were against the ouster of Senator Kipchumba Murkomen.

Making reference to when the opposition contested the 2017 Presidential Elections results, Otiende said those who trashed laws at the time are now accusing President Uhuru Kenyatta of not following due procedure in replacing Murkomen as the Senate Majority Leader.

“People Who Trashed Laws & Procedures As We Battled Presidential Petition 2017 Have Only Now Realised That Laws & Procedures Exist & Are Important..., This Country Kenya!” wrote Amollo.

Kericho Senator Aaron Cheruiyot, however, disagreed with him, asking him to be consistent in his quest for justice.

“Do you know what decent people do? They speak against evil ALL the time.

“Otherwise there's no difference between you and the tyrants if evil excites you when meted on those you do not agree with politically,” said Cheruiyot.

At the Senate, various senators asked Murkomen not to burn bridges but continue in the same spirit and serve the country.

Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja confirmed that indeed 20 Senators attended the meeting called by the President and they settled on West Pokot Senator Samuel Poghisio as the new Senate Majority Leader.

He also asked Murkomen to show some respect to the Jubilee Party leadership saying failing to show up for the meeting was in bad taste.

Earlier, Murkomen challenged the President to now deliver his promises to Kenyans if he considered him a stumbling block.
