The controversial lawmaker and Elgeyo Marakwet Senator, Kipchumba Murkomen is finally happy with the former Prime Minister and leader of ODM, Raila Odinga.
Ecstatic lawmaker joined other leaders in congratulating Raila Odinga for accepting the BBI(Building Bridges Initiative) report needs amendment to accommodate more views.
Raila, who was meeting pastoralist communities in Nairobi on Monday, said BBI will be amended to incorporate views of all Kenyans.
Prior to Raila Odinga saying the BBI report needed amendment, Siaya County Senator, James Orengo, and allies said the document was not subject to amendments and will be adopted as it is.

Raila’s move has attracted praise from Murkomen, a close ally of Deputy President Wiliam Ruto, who has insisted the document should be amended to accommodate pastoralists, Devolutionists, hustlers, Judiciary among others.
“Well done. Glad you’ve rescinded your earlier hardline position that BBI won’t be amended.” Elgeyo Marakwet Senator said on Twitter, “Now let’s amend the document to capture concerns of pastoralists, Devolutionists, Judiciary, etc then pass BBI by consensus. We don’t want a US vs THEM attitude. Let’s reason together as Kenyans,”
