BBI Kitui: Moses Kuria, Murkomen kicked out of rally

MP Moses Kuria and Senator Kipchumba Murkomen were on Saturday bundled out of the BBI rally in Kitui.

Their entrance caused an uproar when Kuria and his Tanga Tanga counterparts failed to have get a seat at the BBI rally.

They were to be offered alternative solutions but MP Moses Kuria stood his ground as he stood disrupting Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana’s speech.

Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu was so vocal at the function that she could be heard demanding the removal of Kuria from the event.

The events disrupted the event for sometime before former DP Kalonzo Musyoka and ODM leader Raila Odinga intercepted.

Moses Kuria and Kipchumba Murkomen were then allowed to have a sit at the camp.

How Moses Kuria and Murkomen landed in trouble

The two leaders found themselves in trouble following their stand against the handshake between Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The members of Tanga Tanga movement cited the handshake is to destroy the Jubilee camp ahead of the 2022 elections.

Not once has Senator Murkomen been quoted saying leaders allied to ODM leader Raila Odinga cause unrest especially during the Kibra by-elections.

In a twist of events, allies to DP Ruto promised to attend scheduled BBI rallies starting with the one held at the Coast last week.

Days to the Kitui rally, Murkomen and other leaders announced a plan to hold parallel rallies.

Their plans short lived as they canceled their plans.
