ADEN Duale has been kicked out as Majority Leader of the National Assembly.
The changes were made during a Jubilee Coalition Parliamentary Group meeting chaired by President Uhuru Kenyatta today.
The new Majority Leader is Kipipiri Member of Parliament Amos Kimunya.
In the new changes, Muturi Kigano will now chair the Justice, Legal Affairs and Human Rights Committee while Kanini Kega will Chair Budget Committee.
Adan Keynan will now be the Coalition Secretary.
The meeting comes amid widening rift between Uhuru and his deputy William Ruto.
But Duale has now blamed Raila for not helping him secure the seat despite visiting him and assuring him of retaining his position.
“I visited Raila and to help me secure the seat, but seems like he was playing games with me. And now he is not receiving my calls anymore.” He lamented
Last week DP Ruto hosted a meeting with legislators who have been dewhipped from various house leaderships in both National Assembly and the Senate.
After a meeting, Ruto posted a new logo with ‘Jubilee Asili, Sote Pamoja’ which is different from Jubilee’s ‘Tuko Pamoja’.
Deputy President William Ruto has been shoved into a tight corner as President Uhuru Kenyatta prepares to shower his new political partners with government rewards.
The defiant move by DP Ruto to open a parallel Jubilee office, named Jubilee Asili and to openly host party rebels, the Star understands, has infuriated the President.
Ruto’s establishment of a splinter group of the ruling coalition is likely to set the tone for Monday’s meeting, which most of the DP’s allies have vowed to snub.
“I will not attend. Why should I attend a meeting where you will be insulted?” asked Belgut MP Nelson Koech.
Much of the agenda at KICC will be replacing 16 of Ruto’s allies who were kicked out of leadership positions from the National Assembly.
Uhuru could award some slots to new suitors, including Wiper and CCM, which signed cooperation agreements with Jubilee on Thursday.
