Mutula Kilonzo's hard tackle on Murkomen leaves Kenyans in stitches

Oops! Mutula throws massive shade at Murkomen

Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo

Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo called out his Elgeyo Marakwet counterpart Kipchumba Murkomen over the latter's cancelled TV interview.

Mr Murkomen had tweeted that Barigo Senator Gideon Moi had a hand in the cancellation of his interview on Standard Media-owned TV station KTN.

"I am sorry to let you know that my colleague Sen.Moi has cancelled my appearance at KTN #CheckPoint Tonight.

"I have always supported media freedom in Kenya. Unfortunately, the struggle between media ownership &editorial independence is real," Senator Murkomen stated.

Mending fences

However, Makueni Senator took the opportunity to remind Murkomen that he had at one time walked out on Gideon Moi's Bill.

The Makueni Senator also advised his two colleagues to have a sit-down and iron out their differences.

"We need a small Man to man chat between the two of you. You walked out when the Data Protection Bill was up for voting. He revenged in the best way possible - cold dish," Senator Mutula tweeted.

Growing Rift

In 2018, Murkomen told off Gideon Moi over what he termed as lurking under the shadow of his father, retired President Daniel Moi.

"Some leaders have very little to show. If you ask them what their achievement is they will refer you to what their father achieved," Murkomen said.

"We are not voting-in your father. You must carve out your own path," he added.
