Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen is one of the bravest and controversial Kenyan politicians and rarely care about what people have to say about him.
A while ago the Senator shared a video of himself splitting firewood at the village, and some people weren’t pleased at all.
In the video he’s dressed in a blue jeans and a white t-shirt captioned the video “Christmas manenos. When Mama says Pchumba lete kuni. She is the boss ha hakuna titles!”
The ever merciless Kenyans on Twitter (KoT) family were unimpressed, and bashed him for letting his mother use firewood despite him being a wealthy man.
Below are some of the reactions;
“You had to sweat doing this. Imagine the hustle so many of our moms go through to feed their families. Ensure affordable energy through legislation.”
“Former MP and now a Senator encouraging use of firewood in 2018 and we expect the same characters to change Kenya? There is nothing funny here! We ARE DOOMED!”
“Deforestation should stop.”
“Have watched the entire clip lakini sijaona ukitoa kuni yoyote.”
“If your own mama struggles this way to fetch firewood, what about people of Elgeyo Marakwet any developments you have done for them?”
“Mnunulie mum power saw. Less time, less energy, less back pain.”
