Majority leader in the National Assembly Aden Duale is pleading with the president to keep off Raila Odinga citing that the handshake has brought more trouble than good to the party. He called on the president and deputy president William Ruto to unite the jubilee party and stay away from divisive politics.
“We have invested in this party, it’s like a company, we have seen the dividends, and we have seen profits and will not allow its destruction. I am one person who will not go down in history as the majority leader of the ruling coalition that jubilee was destroyed when I was in office. I will be the only one standing…especially by a person who has a history of political party destruction who doesn’t believe in democracy” Duale spoke during the flagging off to relief food to Mandera County event in which William Ruto was present.
The current jubilee woes are being pegged on the union between Uhuru and Raila which the Ruto camp is not happy about as they feel they are left out and being attacked especially in the ongoing graft crackdown. The president and his deputy have showed signs of fall out and though they still maintain a clean image of unity, non-verbal communication between the two says otherwise. Ruto and Raila do not see eye to eye and the opposing sides have been fighting each other verbally in public events.
Several jubilee leaders seconded Hon Duale and called for unity between party members.
