The legislator served as the Majority leader in the previous House. He has been replaced by Elgeyo Marakwet’s Kipchumba Murkomen.

Many have viewed his latest position as a demotion but the Senator said he asked for a less engaging job.

“I am the one who told the President to give me a less-engaging position because I want to play a critical role in national politics. I am a player in a team called Jubilee where Uhuru is the captain, DP William Ruto the assistant,” he said.
