Loud mouth Aden Duale has made a 180 degrees U-turn, ditching DP Ruto, he is now singing praises for Kieleweke wing of Jubilee. Hon Duale has sensed danger and is said to have called Statehouse strongman David Murathe and pledged his total loyalty and promised henceforth never to support Ruto. He has changed all his official social media handle profile pictures replacing them with those where he is captured with President Uhuru Kenyatta at past functions.
Hon Duale is married to a dynasty family and therefore his move to support Uhuru was long overdue. Hon Duale is a son inlaw to retired president Moi’s KDF boss General Mohamud Mohammed, the man who saved Moi in the 1982 coup. General Mohamud family are close Moi family friends and are neighbors in Nakuru just like all dynasties including the Koinanges, Nyachaes, Kenyattas etc
In an interview yesterday, May 13, 2020, Hon Duale indicated that the President was at a point where he could not take any more cases of indiscipline in the party.
“The president has been very patient but we’ve reached a point where we cannot take any more indiscipline in the party. In fact, one of the things we are considering right now is that some of the MPs who have been acting out of turn, we are going to start a process of recalling them,” he is quoted by a local media.
This move comes just two days after Senate Majority leader Kipchumba Murkomen was ousted and replaced by Samuel Poghisio.
Murkomen was ousted following a meeting with President Uhuru Kenyatta and Senators from the Jubilee party on Monday morning.
Further, in a letter by Jubilee Party Secretary-General Raphael Tuju, nominated Senators who snubbed the Parliamentary Group meeting by President Uhuru Kenyatta were expelled.
They included Falhada Dekow Iman, Naomi Jillo Waqo, Victor Prengei, Mary Seneta Yiane and Millicent Omanga.
According to Tuju, the senators were expelled for gross insubordination, gross misconduct since despite receiving invitation messages, they did not even bother to send apologies for not attending meeting.
“If they have any illusions that we will make the mistakes made by ODM and ANC with respect to unsuccessful expulsion of some of their members, we have learnt our lesson and are going to follow due process,” said Tuju.
The Party has also announced that it will take action against rebels in parliament including recall.
The five senators will face the disciplinary committee and their fate announced in a week’s time.
The Jubilee party is currently facing wrangles with legislators divided on the basis of who they support. The Tanga tanga are allied to the DP while the Kieleweke support the party leader Uhuru Kenyatta.
