Transport Cabinet Secretary Kipchumba Murkomen has fired back at UDA Secretary General Cleophas Malalah after he was told to focus on his work or resign and join politics

Transport Cabinet Secretary Kipchumba Murkomen has fired back at UDA Secretary General Cleophas Malalah after he was told to focus on his work or resign and join politics.

Speaking on Friday, May 31 in Kijabe while inspecting the damaged railway line in the area, Murkomen said his role as a CS involves touring across the country to inspect roads.

He vowed to continue with his visits across the country to meet Kenyans and hear their concerns on roads and other infrastructure.

“Some people are telling me to just stay in the office because I am a Cabinet Secretary. They want me to just stay in the office and that I shouldn’t be seen walking around with Members of Parliament because I have become a boss,” said Murkomen.

He added, “As a CS, I will continue to visit the grassroots so that I can see the problems there. I must travel and inspect the roads and bridges so that I can help the citizens.”

On Wednesday, Malalah warned CS Murkomen and his Public Service counterpart Moses Kuria over involvement in politics.

“It has come to my attention that some cabinet secretaries have been involving themselves in political activities, contrary to the law which requires them to remain apolitical,” said Malalah.

The UDA Secretary-General asked Murkomen to focus on issues in his ministry and serve Kenyans instead of politicking.

“Kipchumba Murkomen, Cabinet Secretary for Roads and Transport, your focus should be on addressing the pressing issues in your ministry, particularly the reclamation of roads damaged by recent floods. Serve the Kenyan people or step down from your position and return to politics,” Malala added.
