"Save us From The Long Lectures" Aden Duale Tells Azimio Camp Over Makau's Latest Remarks About Ruto

Few hours after the Spokesperson of Raila Odinga's Presidential campaign secretariat, Professor Makau Mutua criticized outgoing Deputy President and President Elect William Ruto, for wooing newly elected candidate to his Kenya Kwanza Alliance camp, Ruto's allies have come out to defend him.

In a statement, Makau argued that Ruto was dragging the country to the KANU era, when there was only one party, and affirmed that those in the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance are bound by the law and cannot be in two coalition at the same time, remarks that were seemed to be directed to the United Democratic Movement party leader Ali Roba who had met with Ruto a day ago.

Taking to his Twitter account on Friday, Garissa Town MP Aden Duale slammed Mutua, saying that any elected leader is free to join the team that has the interests of the constituents at heart, and thus the Azimio team should stop the 'long lecturers.'

The Former Majority leader in the National Assembly said that the move by the MPs to work with the KKA team should not worry the Azimio side, since Constitution in Articles 36 and 38 guarantees freedom of association, and will to join any political party of choice.

"Every person is free to associate with any person or join any association including a political party. This is a constitutional right which is also guaranteed in the Bill of Rights. It cannot be stifled,"

"Our Azimio brothers should therefore save us from the long lectures, and mind games meant to incite Kenyans based on their own fears, just because everyone is jumping from their ship and is choosing freedom over coercion, intimidation and the bill of rights over illegalities," he tweeted, urging the Azimio team to move on.
