Embattled Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen had it rough on Saturday, November 9, after he mocked the handshake deal between Opposition leader Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta.
According to the senator, the famous handshake that was supposed to be a safe haven for the once opposing sides was not serving its purpose.
“This nation is slowly sliding into anarchy. What a paradox that we were told handshake was a panacea for all our political ills. Let’s choose peace,” he encouraged.
The senator was addressing the issue of how Jubilee faithful, former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale and Kimilili MP Didymus Barasa had been brutalised in the recently concluded November 7 Kibra by-election.
“To my colleagues in Jubilee who were brutalised in Kibra, I understand your pain and frustrations. I beg you not to revenge. This nation is slowly sliding into anarchy,” his post read.
Following his post, things, however, took a dramatic turn after social media users bashed the legislator, with some reminding him of instances the Jubilee government had pulled similar stance while others attacked him for crying foul despite being part of the government that could offer solutions.
One Twitter user named Samuel Migele posted, “What a paradox that the people in government, with all powers and resources to stop violence, are crying because of mistreatment of people in the opposition.”
Jama Kiauto posted the picture of the late Elizabeth Wangoi, a Kiamba church survivor reminding the senator of the injustice that took place during the 2007 post-election violence whose perpetrators had never been brought to book.
“Lucky enough Fatou Bensouda has the names of former and current trouble makers, she only needs to recall the files,” he posted.
Henry Mutisya questioned, “If you are in Jubilee, the party that holds reigns of power and you can be brutalized by a mere opposition, should we continue trusting you to protect the country against Alshaabab and other militias? Don’t you think its high time you people resign n pave way for a new government?”
“The handshake was meant to stop electoral malpractices, stop corruption, and ensure peace. Kibra people were trying to stop electoral malpractices and I support fully what I saw being done to Khalwale, and Baraza. The handshake is working,” affirmed Pedro Ochieng.

If its chaos/violence then team tangatanga participated fully.For instance,why was Khalwale holding stones?or they were his ID n Voting card?.U forget so easily,in 2017 the same Ruto n Uhuru ordered the killing of NASA supporters mostly in Kibra n now he pretend to care for them.
