On Wednesday, Leader of Majority in the National Assembly and Garissa Town MP revealed Kanini Kega’s plan to impeach him.
“I am aware of Kieni’s MP Kanini Kega’s move to impeach me from my position. The legislature has collected signatures from several members of parliament to support the motion.
“He’s trying to go against the President’s decision of me retaining my position. However, Kega’s plans aren’t new as he thrives on extortion, threats, and blackmail,” read Duale’s statement in part.
Cleaning the Jubilee coalition
During Jubilee’s party Parliamentary Group Meeting on June 2, President Uhuru reaffirmed Duale’s commitment to the party and allowed him to retain his position.
Following the ongoing purge in the Jubilee coalition, political commentators marked Duale s one of the people likely to lose his plum post.
This comment, based on David Murathe’s speech on April 14, stated Jubilee would ax Ruto allies from their various committee positions.
“President Uhuru Kenyatta wants to work with people who will support his agenda. Ruto allies aren’t in support of Uhuru’s reforms as they continuously sabotage his plan,” stated Murathe.
However, in a turn of events, Duale announced he was ready to serve the President and support his legacy.
“I will work with all the committee chairmanship and the new leadership. This will help us achieve our promise to Kenyans by the end of five years,” he added.
He further rubbished Kega’s plan of trying to impeach him through collecting signatures from legislatures. He added the process was a waste of time as the President cemented his position during the Parliamentary Group Meeting.
Concurrently, Ngunjiri Wambugu, Nyeri Town MP, confirmed plans to ouster Aden as the Leader of the Majority.
Previously, Ngunjiri supported the removal of Duale. He, however, changed tune and supported the President’s decision.
Duale’s statement comes a day after the President altered the government’s organization under Executive Order 1 of 2020.
One notable change was abolishing the Deputy President’s office and putting it under the office of the President.
