Tuesday June 23, 2020 – Deputy President William Ruto has sent a message to Garissa Town MP, Aden Duale, after he was removed as Majority Leader in Parliament.
During a Parliamentary Group meeting at Kenyatta International Conference Centre (KICC) on Monday, President Uhuru Kenyatta oversaw the removal of Duale and replaced him with Kipipiri MP, Amos Muhinga Kimunya.
Ruto, in a post on social media, praised Duale for his eight year tenure describing him as a loyal and passionate civil servant.
“My brother Aden Duale, you are a great leader.”
“For the last eight years, you discharged your responsibilities as our party’s first majority leader with style, precision, passion and loyalty.”
“My friend, when parliamentary history is written, you will have a chapter.”
“Mbele iko sawa na Mungu,” the DP posted.
Kieni MP, Kanini Kega, who was the architect of the removal of Mr Duale, said that he had nothing personal against the former Majority Leader, but time had come to pass over the baton.
