Kipchumba Murkomen praises Ruto for the Cabinet slot

Cabinet Secretary for Roads, Transport, and Public works nominee senator Kipchumba Murkomen is full of gratitude to President William Ruto.

Murkomen has today thanked Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, and President William Ruto, for having faith in him, to the extent of appointing him as the Cabinet Secretary in a crucial docket as Roads, Transport and Public Works.

Speaking in Uasin Gishu County today, Elgeyo Marakwet senator exuded confidence that he’d reciprocate the trust that his two bosses have bestowed on him, with a thorough delivery of services. “I want to thank you DP, and the president, for believing in me and giving me this opportunity to serve Kenyans. I have been in Senate for a while but you saw it fit I serve the country in this capacity. I want to say a big thank you,” Murkomen said.
“Be prepared to be my mentors on executive issues as you were in the legislature. I will be willing to learn,” he added.

Kipchumba Murkomen is among the three members of parliament – (from the both senate and the national assembly) who have made it to President William Ruto’s Cabinet Secretary nominee list

– who will have to let go of their elective posts. Others are Aden Duale, who will now be the Cabinet Secretary of Defence, and Alice Wahome, who will be in charge of Water Sanitation and Irrigation. Kipchumba Murkomen is currently the Senator for Elgeyo Marakwet county, Aden Duale is the member of parliament for Garissa Town constituency while Alice Wahome is the member for Kandara constituency, Muranga County.

It is going to be an interesting time to see a young lawyer in Kipchumba Murkomen transition from being a two-term Senator, to head a full ministry, which has had challenges – especially in dealing with the rowdy matatu drivers, and conductors (makanga).

Kenyans are also waiting with bated breath to see how the young Kipchumba will fit in the big shoes left by a no-nonsense erstwhile Minister John Michuki.
