Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen was the talk of the town on Tuesday after he posted a picture of his youthful looking father.
Murkomen who is also the senate majority leader posed for the cameras with his father who could be confused for his brother.
“Today I had a special visitor in my office in the person of my Dad. We had an opportunity to pray for God’s grace and guidance in the difficult tasks ahead of us in our different careers. May God guide him in his pastoral duties. Amen,” Murkomen captioned the pictures.

In July Siaya Senator James Orengo made callous remarks about the majority leader who had earlier on blamed former Prime Minister Raila Odinga for the Mau Forest evictions.
In a video that sent the interwebs into a frenzy, Orengo said that Murkomen’s father had sired an idiot.
“Can Murkomen really claim to be in government and the evictions are ongoing and he has no answer except to blame Raila? If there is any man who sired an idiotic child, then Murkomen’s father is one,” Orengo said.
But in what many would say was a classy response, the majority leader said: “Senator James Orengo is slightly older than my dad. Orengo was elected to Bunge in 1979, the year I was born. A debate of who gave birth to what kind of a child can only be between Orengo and my Dad. I would like to respect Orengo’s children and their achievements even though I don’t know them.”
