Renowned lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi has teased Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen and accused him of committing a ‘felony’ during the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) rally at Kinoru stadium in Meru County on Saturday.
According to Cambridge english dictionary, a felony is a serious crime that can be punished by one or more years in prison.
Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria and a part of the crowd followed the vocal Senator out of Kinoru stadium.
Commenting on the dramatic walkout, Abdullahi said he was convinced the Senate Majority Leader committed a felony by leading out of the venue a crowd, which he alleged had been paid to attend.
“Senator Murkomen…I don’t mind defending you in court, but as a lawyer I’m convinced today(Saturday) in Meru you committed a felony under chapter 63 of the laws of Kenya…that of stealing a crowd paid for and ferried by the sponsors of the BBI rally in Meru…Guilty or not guilty?” the Senior Counsel tweeted.
In a quick rejoinder, Murkomen defended himself and said: “It was not my fault your honour the crowd wanted to go to Canaan and fancied a real Joshua.”
In another post on Twitter, the Elgeyo Marakwet Senator apologised for disrupting the event, explaining he left before the end of the BBI rally, which was attended by various political bigwigs, since he had other engagements.
“It isn’t true that I stormed out of the Kinoru BBI meeting. Moses Kuria who gave me lift was leaving for another engagement. I had no choice but to follow. I also had parental duties in my children’s school. I apologize that wanachi followed us out of the stadium. We intended not,” Murkomen said.
