“There is nothing like a lucrative committee… I know Ichung’wa is a committed member who will serve very well in the Catering Committee. 

“Under corona, there are no services being given in the House, but when we return, I will blame Hon. Ichung’wa if the quality of my tea and mandazi goes down,” said Junet.

Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen on Wednesday encouraged Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung’wa who was moved from the lucrative Budget and Appropriations Committee to the Member Services Committee.

This is after Minority Whip Junet Mohamed said he would hold him accountable if the quality of tea and mandazis went down.

Murkomen called upon those who were called to serve in somewhat lesser roles to do so with diligence as they would gain favour with God and man.

“If a man is called to be a street sweeper...sweep streets...as a Michael Angelo painted or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry...sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, “Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well,” he tweeted.


Junet heaped praises on the Kikuyu legislator saying he was one of the best performing MPs in the house and expected him to continue with the same vigour.

“There is nothing like a lucrative committee… I know Ichung’wa is a committed member who will serve very well in the Catering Committee.

“Under corona, there are no services being given in the House, but when we return, I will blame Hon. Ichung’wa if the quality of my tea and mandazi goes down,” said Junet.

Ichung’wa welcomed the idea of serving in his new role saying he will ensure all the lawmakers are comfortable during sittings especially during this Covid-19 period.

“…I thank the Majority Leader and Majority Whip for the opportunity to serve in the Member Services Committee, which was previously known as the Catering Committee… these services includes virtual sittings in this age of COVID-19 to help elderly members like baba of Parliament Jimmy Nuru Angwenyi and Maina Kamanda, to continue serving their constituents.

“This is also the committee that oversights the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC),” said Ichung’wa.

Adding: “I know where Junet comes from, catering is very important… but member services include being facilitated to attend even today’s House sitting to be able to transact parliamentary business… I will take up this assignment with passion, energy and gusto.”


The Member Services Committee is currently chaired by Nyaribari Masaba MP Ezekiel Machogu.
