In a Tweet on Friday, the Senate Majority Leader shied away from politics and cast a picture of an academic, reading a book authored by former Manchester United Manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

The outspoken senator posted a picture on his official Twitter account pensively reading the book titled 'Leading' while leaning on a leather office seat with his coat hanging at the background.

"We welcome and support [John] Mbadi and [Gladys] Wanga as they defend our Jubilee record, [Martha] Karua and Peter Kenneth as they defend the Jubilee Party and Governor [Ann] Waiguru as she leads women in embracing the fight against corruption. As for me, it’s been a great week. Done with my first book of the year. Next..." he Tweeted.

Mbadi, Wanga, Karua, Waiguru and Kenneth all addressed the media this week supporting the famous March 9th handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga.

They held that the political undertaking has brought unity especially after Kenyans emerged from one of the country's most divisive elections last year.

Murkomen has been critical of leaders both in Jubilee and the opposition who he alleges are out to 'kill' the ruling party following the famous March 9th handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila.

Some Jubilee leaders including the senator allege Raila's decision to embrace Uhuru's development vision and his closeness to the head of State is meant to deny Deputy President William Ruto the opportunity to succeed Uhuru in 2022.
