Elegeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has responded to All Saints Cathedral clergyman Rev. Sammy Wainaina over his criticism of the 'dynasty-hustler' politics.
The Senator on Tuesday, January 26 noted that he does not agree with some of the clergyman's ideas, but a lot of people are of a similar opinion.
"Rev.S.Wainaina recently gave a fiery sermon on Hustlers vsDynasty. On Sunday he gave another fiery sermon against BBI & the current prevailing political deceit," Murkomen said.
"He looks like a lone voice in the wilderness but he speaks for many. I don’t agree with him on everything but I respect him," he added.
Rev Wainaina on Sunday blasted President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto over their brand of politics ahead of the 2022 General Election.
He warned that the emerging class and tribal politics poses the danger of dividing Kenyans along ethnic and class lines unless swift action is taken to remedy the situation.
The Reverend Canon cited the hustler-dynasty dichotomy propagated by DP Ruto as a ticking time-bomb that could explode any time now.
He pointed out that already a class war has begun brewing and those labelled ‘hustlers’ living in the poor estates have started ganging up against those described as a dynasty.
This, he asserted, is how turmoil starts and soon organised gangs will spring up demanding ‘taxes’ from the “dynasties” as the anarchy continues taking root in the country.
“This is how anarchy starts. Currently, the church is silent on what is going in the country but I will speak even if I am the lone voice,” the Reverend said.
He further urged politicians and their supporters to stop demonising and dramatising the inequality that is inherent in Kenya and instead propose how to fight poverty – that admittedly is well entrenched – without destroying the nation.
