Outgoing National Assembly Majority leader Aden Duale has
expressed his gratitude to President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William
Ruto, saying that he is humbled to have served the party in the capacity for
the past seven years.
Speaking in parliament on Tuesday, during the handing over
to his successor Amos Kimunya, Duale said he will leave to remember serving the
country as the first Majority Leader under the new constitution.
“I wish to thank the President of the Republic of Kenya
& my party leader H.E Uhuru Kenyatta, the Deputy President H.E William Ruto
and the entire Jubilee Party, for having given me the opportunity to serve the
people of Kenya as a Leader of Majority Party for the past seven years.
“Indeed, just like the famous swahili saying that “kilicho kuwa na mwanzo hakikosi kuwa na
mwisho” today marks the end of my service as the First Leader of Majority
Party of this House under Article 108 of the Constitution,” said the Garissa
Duale further had a piece of advice to the Kipipiri MP Amos
Kimunya, urging him to walk in his own style and feel.
“As you take up the new mantle my distinguished Colleague,
Hon. Kimunya, wear your shoes, walk according to your style and your feel,”
said Hon. Duale.
Duale was ousted from the post during Monday Parliamentary
Group Meeting held at the KICC Nairobi.
