Monday June 22, 2020 – Garisa Township MP, Aden Duale, is no longer the Majority Leader in the National Assembly.
This is after he was ousted from his position by President Uhuru Kenyatta following a Jubilee Parliamentary Group (PG) meeting at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre today.
At the meeting presided over Uhuru, it was resolved that Duale would be replaced by Kipipiri MP, Amos Kimunya.
Eldas MP, Adan Keynan, was also designated to take over as the Secretary to the Jubilee Coalition Parliamentary Group, a position previously occupied by Kimunya.
President Uhuru Kenyatta attended the meeting in person despite initial communication indicating that he would address the lawmakers via video link from State House, Nairobi.
Deputy President William Ruto was also present at KICC despite his allies in the Senate and National Assembly being targeted for removal in the relentless Jubilee purge.
The meeting which began shortly after 9 a.m lasted less than one hour, with lawmakers who attended quickly agreeing to the proposed changes.
