Duale going nowhere despite calls for his head
22 July 2015, 08:05
Nairobi - Majority leader in the national assembly Aden Duale is going nowhere despite continued calls for his head, experts believe.
After calls from opposition leaders for Duale to be arrested for failing to release a list of suspected Al Shabaab sympathisers in the country died down, Jubilee government MPs allied to the National Alliance Party TNA have rekindled the fire.
Speaking Tuesday, they promised to ensure Duale is kicked out of office as the Leader of Majority unless he comes up with the lost in the next 7 days.
That is what experts believe, with the chances of Duale even remotely worried about his fate as slim as the chances of him actually being forced out of office.
Michael Njenga, political scientist
" Duale is going nowhere as has been proven by the previous time in which he had been under pressure following his remarks."
" He is a key cog in the Jubilee coalition wagon wheel and the President would not allow him be touched, especially by members of his own coalition."
" There would also be the feeling that Duale exiting only benefits the CORD agenda which has been to try have Duale out of office as quickly as possible in recent times."
" So for me it would be counter-productive and a non starter."
Isaac Kipng'etich, political scientist
" This is laughable. Nothing like this would happen at all,".
" First, the fact that it is TNA members calling for his exit is a story of its own. There would be serious opposition from the URP wing and deputy President William Ruto."
" Also, there would be a victory parade for CORD if it were achieved and it would present a serious split in the Jubilee coalition, all things that can be avoided.
" If it does get past the mention stage, I expect that the President will step in and ensure that there is a deal on the table to stop it in its tracks."
" A waste of time for me".
