Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen.  

Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has divulged that Senators passed through several challenges before reaching an agreement on the county revenue sharing formula.

In an Interview on Citizen TV on Wednesday night, Murkomen claimed that some senators were harassed and molested due to their stand on the formula.

According to him, the executive does not deserve any credit, as it was one of the stumbling blocks in the revenue debate.

“It is wrong for you to give credit to the executive, the executive has yielded to pressure from the Senate; it took even some senators being arrested, it took some of us being molested and harassed… eventually the executive yielded first to the formula we were pursuing of win-win,” he said in part.

Despite making the sensational claim, the senator did not provide further details explaining the molestation bit.
