Moses Kuria comes out guns blazing in defense of Raila, embarrassing Kipchumba Murkomen

"Only a stupid man can oppose the handshake"-Kuria responds to Murkomen

In a terse response to recent remarks by Kipchumba Murkomen in which the Senator linked Odinga to the ongoing Mau forest evictions claiming that it is being done in the spirit of the handshake, Kuria absolved Odinga from all blames.

The Gatundu South legislator made it known that “only a stupid man can oppose the handshake”.

Kuria had no kind words for his Jubilee colleagues who appear to have launched early campaigns in readiness for 2022.

“The spirit of handshake is not going anywhere and we need to do this much more. I call upon the critics to shelve early campaigns for 2022 to promote peace and tranquility in the country”.

The MP who is scheduled to attend thanksgiving ceremony for the Information Communication, Technology and Innovation (ICT) Principal Secretary in Nyakach later on in the day was addressing crowds that turned up in Kisumu to receive him on Saturday morning

Murkomen attracted the wrath of lawmakers from across te political divide after he stated that “Some people who recently joined the government through the backdoor are working with some government officials to remove people from Mau”.

Among those who condemned his remarks are MPs Moitalel ole Kenta, David Ole Sankok and Senator Johnson Sakaja who noted that Murkomen’s claims on Mau forest evictions are “disingenuous, underhand and disrespectful to the President”.

He further warned that recent trend of “senior leaders, including those in leadership, were rubbishing directives from the President” will no longer be tolerated in Jubilee.

The Nairobi Senator declared called for an immediate end to inciting Kenyans against the President’s initiatives and undermining his leadership.
