Elgeyo Marakwet senator Kipchumba Murkomen on Tuesday called for organised management of the ruling Jubilee party, urging its leadership to borrow a leaf from the opposition outfit ODM.
During a breakfast interview on Citizen TV, the outspoken critic of the Orange party expressed his admiration for the Raila Odinga-led party, asserting that it is better managed and its leadership more disciplined.
“I admire the management of ODM despite all the challenges they have,” he said.
The Senate Majority Leader applauded the Orange party for the manner in which it managed the political truce between its leader and President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“Even during the handshake, the former Prime Minister called his party members and explained to them,” he said, suggesting his misgivings on the failure of the President to explain to Jubilee party members about the truce.
Murkomen also said he admired the fact that ODM has a structured model of management and its decision-making through its organs and communication as a unit.
“You will always hear the ODM National Executive Council has said this organ has decided that. They are the second largest party as ours [Jubilee party] and has survived for 10 years, and us only five. We need to learn something from them,” he said.
The remarks by the senator are a wide departure from his trademark fierce attacks on the former premier and the Orange party.
Bahati member of Parliament Kimani Ngunjiri who led protesters to demonstrate against President Uhuru Kenyatta has been arrested in Nakuru.
Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri was displeased about President Uhuru Kenyatta verbal attack on Mt Kenya leaders demanding for the development of the region.
The president referred to those MPs agitating for development projects as “washenzi” who should let him be.
“Wale wanatapatapa huko na siasa duni, sisi tumesema kwamba maendeleo haitakua inapatikana kwa sababu kiongozi ametoka pahali fulani. (Those moving around with cheap politics, we have decided that development will no longer be distributed according to region the President is from).”
In protest, the legislator led demonstrations on the streets of Nakuru in a t-shirt written “Mimii ni mshenzi. Je wewe mwana Kenya?”
