Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen is an angry man following government’s failure to facilitate the return of exiled lawyer Dr Miguna Miguna.
Murkomen’s anger, however, is being directed at the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI), a task force that was formed to bring peace among Kenyans.
The BBI, a child that was born as a result of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s ‘marriage’ with former Prime Minister Raila Odinga through a handshake, was recently launched at Bomas of Kenya with a key intention of bettering Kenyans’ lives.
However, Murkomen has expressed his disappointment that up to this point, BBI has not been able to save the life of a single Kenyan named Miguna Miguna.
Murkomen now believes that with BBI’s failure to save Miguna Miguna, it can’t be trusted with the lives of 47 million Kenyans.
Murkomen further notes that BBI has failed to compel the obedience of court orders acquired by Miguna in the facilitation of his return.
“Despite the pomp&the razzmatazz that accompanied the launch of BBI in Bomas of Kenya, it’s now clear that BBI itself cannot even save one citizen in the name of Miguna Miguna neither can it compel the obedience of court orders. If it can’t save one man, how will he save 47M Kenyans?” posted Murkomen.

However, Kenyans on Twitter were so quick to jump on his post to hilariously calm his anger with some questioning whether Murkomen wants to cry over his complaints.
Some took his post as hypocritical, reminding him of what he said at the time Miguna Miguna was first deported to Canada after commissioning Raila’s mockery swearing-in ceremony at Uhuru Park in 2018.
Murkomen had said that one individual right that seemed a threat to the rights of 45 million people couldn’t be subjected to threaten the lives of more people.
In your own words Murkonen

You were part of the looters of the popular vote that saw you grab power and use it against MIGUNA. God has now sown confusion in Jubilee thats why you are ranting like a radarless WARTHOG..

Hello. Why didn't you spoke the same before clarification from Miguna so to mean Miguna is able to see the future on his own. Clinching on others is not the way to go.
