Garissa Township legislator, Aden Duale, has unraveled the strained relationship between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy, William Ruto, through revealing conversations he had with the Head of State.

Speaking on Gerald Bitok YouTube show, Duale affirmed confronting Uhuru on his perceived broken relationship with Ruto – claims which the MP says the President denied.

Further, the legislator pointed out that the Commander-in-Chief stated that he had not denounced his deputy as his preferred successor.

“More than 20 times I have asked President Uhuru Kenyatta if he has an issue with Deputy President William Ruto and he says he has no problem.”

“I’ve also asked him whether he has another preferred candidate, and he asked me in my face, where did I say that William Ruto is not my candidate?” Duale stated.

The Garissa MP reiterated that the politics of deceit and betrayal has been prevalent within the scene in the recent past and is expected to continue as we head to the 2022 General Election.

People are only telling you one side of the story. The politics of betrayal, deceit and backstabbing is a common denominator in Kenyan politics.”

He referenced to Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader, Raila Odinga, whom he claimed betrayed his loyal members at his camp for aligning with former President Mwai Kibaki.

“In the case of Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader, Raila Odinga, don’t tell us mountain must elect Raila for saying Kibaki Tosha.”

“By affiliating with Kibaki, Raila betrayed senior leaders in his camp such as Simeon Nyachae, George Saitoti, Kalonzo Musyoka over what they agreed at Serena hotel ( that they wouldn’t agree on a candidate at the time) and I was part of that movement. Raila stated Kibaki Tosha for his own selfish interests,”

Aden Duale stated.

The former National Assembly Majority Leader has been on the campaign trail for the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) outfit affiliated with Ruto.

Duale previously served as a devout loyalist to ODM leader Raila during the 2007 General Election when he vied for the Garissa Township parliamentary seat.
