Immediate former Majority Leader Aden Duale has finally weighed in into the news of his removal as the leader of government business in parliament.
Taking to Facebook, Duale is thankful for the position saying he has been able to outdo himself for the seven years he has been there.
“Today marks the end of my seven years of service to the great people of Kenya as the Leader of Majority of the National Assembly. I was the first occupant of the seat under article 108 of the constitution,” he wrote.
He is particularly grateful to President Kenyatta not forgetting William Ruto for the position they accorded him, adding it took cooperation both from allies and foes to see him realize the expectations under his office.
“I indeed thank my party leader H.E Uhuru Kenyatta, for having given me the opportunity to serve the great people of Kenya and for this I am grateful. I equally thank the Deputy President, the entire jubilee members of parliament, and my family for their support during this period,” Duale said.
“This was not an easy task but one which required that I work with everyone, be it foe or friend and in the end and with the help of Allah, I delivered,” he said.
He also acknowledged Amos Kimunya’s appointment into the post wishing him every luck as he begins his new assignment.
“To my brother Hon. Kimunya, permit me to congratulate you for your new appointment,” he said.
Hon. Duale was removed upon the decision of more than 120 members who signed a petition of having Duale removed from his position. The decision was cemented in the Monday PG meeting convened at the KICC with President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy attending.
The post has been awarded to Amos Kimunya, who will be in the mantle through 2022.
