Kenyans troll DP Ruto, Murkomen for launching ICT center with old computers
- Taking to Twitter to announce the news, Murkomen and DP Ruto stated that they launched the center at Sambir Girls using funds from the national government through the Ministry of Education and the CDF.
- The outspoken Jubilee politician also uploaded a few images from the launch alongside the caption and one particular photo caught the attention of Kenyans.
Deputy President William Ruto and Senate Majority leader Kipchumba Murkomen on Saturday launched an Informations and Communications Technology (ICT) center at a girls school in Elgeyo Marakwet but Kenyans online are not pleased.
Taking to Twitter to announce the news, Murkomen and DP Ruto stated that they launched the center at Sambir Girls using funds from the national government through the Ministry of Education and the Constituency Development Fund (CDF).
“We raised Ksh.18M for equipping the center by purchasing new computers to replace the obsolete ones, purchase new books and complete ongoing construction of dormitory,” wrote the Elgeyo Marakwet Senator.
The outspoken Jubilee politician also uploaded a few images from the launch alongside the caption and one particular photo caught the attention of Kenyans.
The photo showed the DP, Murkomen and officials from the school standing in a room with old tables and obsolete, outdated computers.
Below is how Kenyans reacted:
A Modern School Computer Lab compared with what was launched in my County today ….. My people are given computers that are obsolete & expected to compete with the rest of the World! Am asking my Governor Tolgos to return the computers to the Donor. We maybe poor but not stupid. pic.twitter.com/O5X97paypd

18m for equipping the center? Equip it with what? Those obsolete computers likely to have been salvaged from a dustbin? Why don't you eat everything instead of taking us through this charade? The nerve!

If Murkomen & Ruto could tell me, how do you as a leader, owning several MacBooks at your home & flying on private choppers frequently, be proud to launch such a disgusting project?? Politics aside, I really hope Kenyan politicians can grow up & get serious some day. pic.twitter.com/84LKEWHw4X

An ultra-modern ICT and Resource Centre launched by the MIGHTY Deputy President Dr. William Ruto and his right-hand man Senator Kipchumba Murkomen at Sambirir Girls School, Elgeyo Marakwet. Good work gentlemen. #TanoTERROR pic.twitter.com/VWjXRfwgHD

Mr. Murkomen, as a young educated man, you are a disgrace to your people and our country. How can you seriously come here and tweet that. 18M and you equip them with P1 computers that look liked you picked from the GOKs central store. Absolutely shameful. https://t.co/yuBUUIpBzN
