Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen has lamented over the cancellation of the Kimwarer Dam project.
In a terse statement through his social media pages, Senator Murkomen said there was a plan all along to kill Kimwarer and Arror dam projects, which are in his Elgeyo Marakwet County.
The legislator hit out at President Uhuru Kenyatta over the composition of the technical committee that assessed the viability of the two projects.
“The composition of the technical committee does not reflect ethnic and regional balance. It is a shame that Maringa, Matu,Mwangi and Muiruri who have no knowledge or attachment to the region have misled the President,”said Mukomen.
He further pointed out that technical committee did not consult anyone neither did they carryout any public participation.
“The people of Elgeyo Marakwet County have been denied their rightful share of national projects in a deliberate act of discrimination,”he added.
The Elgeyo Marakwet Senator called on President to constitute a transparent team, with a national outlook, to assess the projects.
