Nairobi - National assembly majority leader, Aden Duale has dismissed claims that he Jubilee coalition is on the brink of collapse due to Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria's allegations that a section of leaders aligned to the Party of National Unity (PNU) fixed William Ruto at The Hague.
Speaking Sunday in Elburgon during a fundraising at Michinda Boys, the Garissa Town MP said that Jubilee is strong as those accused of ‘fixing’ the deputy president were under the tenure of President Kibaki and have already left government.
“Those being mentioned are not in this regime. They were in the other government and packed together with President Mwai Kibaki. We will remain united,” Duale said.

“President Kenyatta was not in PNU and could not have fixed Ruto and himself,” Duale added.
The majority leader was addressing fears within Jubilee circles that Kuria’s claims could create bad blood between Jubilee supporters in the TNA and URP sides.
During a prayer rally for the Deputy President William Ruto and radio journalist Joshua Sang in Bungoma, Kuria shocked many when he said that he was part of a network that recruited witnesses to make up stories against the deputy president at The Hague.
He also dragged Nark Kenya party leader, Martha Karua into the mess. Karua has since rubbished the claims and gone to court seeking damages for defamation.
