Raila Junior on Wednesday opined on the troubles facing Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen likening it to a movie.

He added that Murkomen must have seen what was coming his way and wondered who was next in line.

“I’m watching this series called “Jubilee”, season 2 is moto. Halfway through plot twist!! A main-sub character @kipmurkomen axed from leader of majority, you knew it was coming but dang, the drama.

“Season finale fast approaching! wonder who’s next...” wrote Raila Jr.

President Uhuru Kenyatta, who is also the Jubilee Party leader, is serving his second and final term and there are a number of disgruntled members in his camp.

While some believe the removal of Murkomen is because of his close relationship with DP William Ruto, others believe the President was tired of what political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi described as sabotage.

Murkomen was replaced by West Pokot Senator Samuel Poghisio (new senate majority leader) while Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika who was the majority whip was replaced by Murang’a senator Irungu Kang’ata.

On Tuesday, Murkomen maintained that he would remain steadfast in his quest for devolution and he will focus on dealing with situations as they come.

“I do not live my life blaming anybody; so I have nobody to blame, my focus is on dealing with situations as they come and solving problems,” said Murkomen.

He later stated that he had a discussion with DP Ruto who told him that all great men must go through trials and tribulations.
