Aden Duale Alleges Why Raila's Popularity is Decreasing in North Eastern Region

Former ally of Raila Odinga during the 2007 general elections Aden Duale has claimed that the ODM leader's popularity across the North Eastern counties had decreased compared to the past years, and that the residents were supporting Deputy President William Ruto.

According to the former Majority leader of the National Assembly, this has been attributed by Raila's move tojoin the governmnet through the handshake thus leaving his official opposition duties.

He further stated that he might not consider working with the ODM leader in future.

Speaking with The Star, the Garissa Township MP says he does not think there is a time their political paths will meet.

"Through the handshake, Raila destroyed his credentials of anti-corruption crusader, human rights defender, and constitution defender. The Raila of 2007 is not the one of today. He should not have supported the BBI," posed Duale.

He however alleges that the former Prime Minister won the 2007 presidential contest that led to a grand coalition formed between him and President Mwai Kibaki.

"I worked with Raila and was part of his campaign team in 2007. If there is one election Raila has won, it is 2007," he claims.
