The heat towards Kenya’s 2022 elections keeps on rising as different factions keep speculating on what’s to come. In a recent TV interview on Citizen TV’s JKLive, respected Senator, Kimani Wamatangi, uttered words of enlightenment. The Senator focused towards the Deputy President’s team.
No-one is above the CONSTITUTION
Kimani Wamatangi, Kiambu County, counseled the much younger and impulsive Elgeyo-Marakwet Senator, Kipchumba Murkomen. Senator Wamatangi reminded the young Senator that chest-thumping can go a long away but not as far as beyond the constitution. The senior senator stayed on a neutral path without supporting nor opposing any faction. He told Murkomen that Kenya is much more important than political positions.
This came after Senator Murkomen beat his chest as a Deputy President ally. The youngster said the Kenyan president, Uhuru Kenyatta, suffers from complex inferiority. The young Senator went ahead and said that nothing can stop them in a way that felt like their team feels entitled to the presidency.
It is this ‘entitlement’ that Senator Wamatangi put into place. He reminded the youngster that tables may turn on the side-kicks. Senator Wamatangi said that Kenya is a country led by a constitution and not by the mere ambitions of a single person.
Senator Wamatangi told the Elgeyo-Marakwet Senator that it is important to emancipate from mental slavery. The Kiambu’s top politician after the President told Murkomen that there is a Kenya beyond 2022 where the Deputy President is not a president. This came when the Kiambu senator was explaining to Jeff Koinange, the host, that the Deputy president’s side-kicks have been so loud forgetting their place.
The respected Senator pointed to the fact that Kenya would continue with or without them. The deputy president’s team has been reported acting as Kenya’s future of late. By insulting his senior, the President, Senator Murkomen illustrated mental slavery.
“There is a problem with someone who insults his senior,” said the Deputy President recently. One wonders, as the deputy utters the some-how words of wisdom, his right-hand-man goes ahead and insults the most senior person in the country. A question lingers in one’s mind, has Murkomen’s horns grown past his boss, the deputy president? A discord between them will surely arise as the young senator’s impulsiveness will continue adding nails on the deputy’s political coffin.
“Senator Murkomen has the habit of overdoing his duties. Too much of anything has always been poisonous. He is slowly becoming a thorn in the Deputy’s flesh. The deputy must and will drop him before 2022,” a deputy president ally told africa24.news.
Murkomen has a loose mouth
In 2018, during a TV interview with a fellow party member, Senator Murkomen was cornered on his involvement in a maize scandal. The young senator went ballistic firing humongous propagandas. His lack of verbal control will lead to his ousting from the deputy’s right arm as he was ousted from the party’s majority leadership.
Peace is Paramount
Senator Wamatngi also further insisted that nothing beats Kenya’s peace. He further said that it does not mean anyone can threaten peace to attain his goals. He said the Kenyan constitution does not allow such carelessness.
Fearing TV’s viewership, the young senator agreed with the Kiambu’s senator. Critics say the Deputy President once threatened peace in Kenya. Senator Murkomen plays blind to that fact by feeding his mental slavery that the deputy MUST be president by hook or crook.
There have been tensions miles away from the elections as the deputy’s team shows a surge of aggression.
