Senate majority leader Kipchumba Murkomen and senate minority leader Moses Wetangula clashed in the senate over a motion that was moved by the Bungoma senator to have the house seat until December 15 to allow them to dispense appointments to the East Africa Legislative Assembly.
Majority leader Kipchumba Murkomen went against the standing orders and instead of allowing the minority leader to second the motion, he called upon his deputy Fatuma Dullo.
Vihiga senator George Khaniri stood on a point of order saying that Murkomen was out of order and was turning senate affairs into Jubilee affairs. He told senator Kipchumba Murkomen that motions in the senate required bipartisan contributions.
Moses Wetangula agreed with Khaniri’s protest accusing Murkomen of treating senate matters casually and that the trend should not be allowed by the speaker.
In a bid to calm the situation Garissa senator Yussuf Hajji said that the speaker of the senate should not allow the two leaders to engage in non constructive talks at the senate.
