“Murkomen you have come from far. I respect you. Sometimes when I see your past photos, I remember my past as an orphan in the hands of well-wishers for education. This photo almost resembles mine in 1995 when I got married. You have come along way. You are eating your hard work,” a Twitter user named Bernard Mobutu commented.

The Elgeyo Marakwet Senator recently opened up that he served as a church pastor to raise funds during his days at the University of Nairobi but later abandoned the career after congregants fled due to his rich Kalenjin accent.
