Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has declined to honour a bet he entered with a friend on Gor Mahia Vs Everton game that was played on Tuesday night.

Everton thrashed Gor 4-0 to clinch the SportPesa cup at the Goodison Park stadium in the UK.

In a video that has gone viral, Murkomen is filmed with three other people and comedian Propesa making a bet.

The latter placed his bet on Everton.

Propesa had said that if Gor Mahia won, he would supply game kits and balls to five schools of Murkomen's choice.

"I want us to have a bet with you Mheshimiwa, if Everton wins I want you to choose ten schools where you will take balls to develop young talents," Propesa said.

However, after yesterday`s defeat, Murkomen backtracked his promise stating that he was coerced.

In a selfie recording, Murkomen jokingly claimed that his Professor had ambushed him in a hotel and had not given him time to think through.

"You ambushed me in a restaurant and you mobilised people and you purported to have agreed with me in some bet, I want to make it clear that I am talking to my lawyers," he said.

He added that he was under duress and under the influence of some fish he had eaten.

"My friend if you are celebrating the win, I want to make clear that I have instructed my lawyers to look into the circumstances we entered the bet," Murkomen said.
