Former National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale who doubles up as the Garissa Township Constituency MP has responded to President Uhuru Kenyatta’s assertions which seemed to describe United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party and Deputy President William Ruto as sprinters in a race doomed to fail. Sprinting is running over a short distance at the top-most speed for a limited period of time.
In an interview with KTN's News Hour program yesterday on Wednesday night, Duale exuded confidence that their United Democratic Alliance Party contrary to Uhuru’s view would emerge victorious in next year's presidential elections slated for August 9th 2022.
“I want to assure the president that with the energy we have and the capacity we have, we will finish this race sprinting. We are not ready for the marathon. He would better tell the former Prime Minister that these guys will sprint until August 8th, 2022,” Duale stated at the interview.
Speaking on Wednesday, after conferring city status to Nakuru, Uhuru said Kenyans should elect a marathoner.
"Vijana punguzeni speed, uongozi sio sprint, ni marathon. Mzee atakanyaga pole pole akupite ukiwa bado kwa barabara," President Kenyatta said.
