From Sh900k watch to shoes worth Sh80k – Murkomen lists expensive things he owns

Transport CS Kipchumba Murkomen has opened up on several expensive things that he owns.

The CS who has been in the eye of a storm for allegedly owning extremely expensive items on Monday clarified that some of the estimates given by Kenyans on his watch and shoes are exaggerated.

Murkomen, however, admitted that he owns one of the most expensive watches including one retailing at Sh900,000.

“The price of the watch I wear is very expensive to say the truth. But it is not worth the price of what people are speculating about on social media. And it is because it was sold to me by my friend,” Murkomen said in an interview with Obina TV.

“There are two watches that have gone viral on social media. The first one, I bought it not as expensive as they said, and the second one a friend of mine, came to me, because he saw the other on social, and said ” I sell watches, do you want me to sell you Rolex?’ and I said yes, why not. He sold it to me at a third (30 percent) of the price being claimed on social media. He even gave me time to pay in installments.”

The CS also revealed that his most expensive shoes retail between Sh70,000 to Sh80,000.

He also has a belt whose price oscillates between Sh40,00 to  Sh50,000.

“I don’t have to wear two belts in two years; one belt is enough. Just buy one belt for Sh50,000 that is quality and which has black and brown sides that you can alternate when wearing,” he said.

On ties, the CS said he has a collection whose price ranges from Sh15,000- Sh20,000.

“In life, there are things that are vanity that you find yourself ending up buying,” he said.

The CS, however, said he has received concerns from Kenya who are questioning his love for expensive things.

He pledged to shun the luxuries to enable Kenyans to focus on his key mandate so that he can be accountable to the people he serves.

“I appreciate the comments that have come from Kenyans asking why are you wearing expensive watches and shoes. And it is true. Had invested it in the money markets to buy bonds, maybe it would have earned interest,” he said.

“I want to tell all Kenyans who faulted me for wearing those watches that that is my weakness and I am willing to correct myself. If a watch or shoe is going to distract the people I serve from the key things that I must be held accountable for, I have said to my friends that the watches can stay.”
