The Member of Parliament for Garissa Town, Aden Duale, has come clean about what led to the rift between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto. As a personal friend of the president and his deputy, Duale acknowledged that he was put in an uncomfortable position requiring him to make complex judgments due to the tension between the two.
Aden Duale admitted he was in denial. He repeatedly asked President Uhuru Kenyatta if he was reconsidering his support for DP William Ruto in the upcoming general election, to which the president allegedly replied "yes."
Furthermore, Aden Duale stated that the president's close associates were degraded. Among those who Duale said were mocking DP Ruto were David Murathe and Tuju. Again, Aden Duale has revealed information on a private encounter with current Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta. According to Duale, President Uhuru Kenyatta accused him of being disloyal. President Kenyatta allegedly urged Aden Duale to pick a side, and Duale claims that this is what happened.
