Murkomen sought sympathy on Twitter, but instead got roasted

Elgeyo Marakwet senator Kipchumba Murkomen is a troubled man. Not only has the government hardened its stance on Mau Forest evictions but Kenyans on Twitter are also giving him tackles.

The senator took his outcry to Twitter writing that often he is called a sycophant for not speaking out and now that he has, he is being accused of being disrespectful to the presidency.

Murkomen’s sentiments on the Mau Forest evictions have been termed as personal by the Jubilee Party leadership with secretary general Raphael Tuju saying the evictions must go on.

The senator’s series of tweets and complains however backfired as Kenyans on Twitter accused him of only speaking out when his interests are at risk.
