William Ruto saved Aden Duale from getting fired

Aden Duale with Uhuru and Ruto

William Ruto allegedly saved National Assembly Majority Leader, Aden Duale from the Jubilee purge which has President Uhuru Kenyatta’s handwriting on it.

Secret talks between William Ruto and Uhuru Kenyatta on Saturday might have been the reprieve that Duale didn’t know he needed since he was next in line to be fired from his powerful position in the government.

According to corroborated report, the lengthy talks between the two powerful men in the country two days shy to Madaraka Day was what helped Duale.

Elgeyo Marakwet Kipchuma Murkomen and Susan Kihika as Senate Majority leader and Majority Whip respectively weren’t spared during the first purge that didn’t spare anyone who was on the front line to be purged.

The President also met up with the Deputy President on June 2, for brief talks before calling in Duale as members waited in the tent.

Duale left the meeting room and joined anxious colleagues in the tent with critics taken aback at the rather unexpected “honorable” treatment.

“The President and the Deputy President met Duale for a couple of minutes before we were addressed.” Jubilee MP who was present during that time said, “It appeared they were giving him some instructions,” said a Jubilee MP who was at State House.

When the President headed to the tent with Ruto, he is said to have been categorical that while “he had pulled the sword, he would not draw the blood today (yesterday)”.

“Baba yangu alinifunza ukitoa njora, rudisha saa zingine bila kutoa damu,” Uhuru is quoted to have said as he addressed the PG in reference to Duale’s fate.
