Murkomen Reacts After Uhuru is Spotted Riding a Motorcycle in Kangundo

Shortly after photos of President Uhuru Kenyatta riding a motorcycle emerged online, Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has come out to weigh in on the source of the ‘Presidents’ motorbike.

Taking to his twitter page on Friday evening, Kipchumba Murkomen alleged that the head of state was enjoying a ride from a motorcycle his deputy William Ruto recently donated to hustlers from East lands Nairobi.


In his wild claims, Murkomen alleged that the head of state had tested Ruto’s donations and found them fit for the purpose.

“I am reliably informed that the motorcycle is one of those recently donated by the Deputy President to some hustlers from East Lands. The President tested it today and found fit for the purpose. #everyhustlematters” tweeted Murkomen.

Murkomen’s reactions came after Uhuru was pictured riding the automobile machine when he made an impromptu visit to the Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) new asphalt blending plant in Kangundo Road on Friday evening.

Uhuru was accompanied by Infrastructure CS James Macharia together with the NMS Kenya
Director-General Major General Mohamed Badi where the three witnessed the processing, loading, and application of asphalt blended at the new facility.

The asphalt that will be processed in Kangundo, according to the State House Kenya, will be used to make roads in Mukuru, Kibera, Mathare and in all corners of Nairobi.

Uhuru’s impromptu visit to the area was, however, rubbished by Murkomen who came out to mock State House saying the police officers should have been notified three days prior to the visit as stipulated by the recently announced procedures.

The senator opined that the state was not genuine in as far as adhering to the set-out procedures, adding that the rules seemed to be only targeting the DP.
