Jubilee MPs disown Duale in face of Waiguru allegations
25 February 2016, 16:43
Nairobi - Jubilee MPs from Central Kenya have disowned Majority Leader Aden Duale in his ongoing war of words with former Devolution CS Anne Waiguru.
The MPs have been noticeably quiet in the days following the allegations by Waiguru that Duale and Senator Kipchumba Murkomen were involved in the National Youth Service NYS scandal.
They also did not show up in a press conference that was aimed at refuting the claims by the Garissa Town MP.
A few MPs who chose to speak to News24 on condition that they not be named, said that the allegations were serious and they did not want to be placed in the same boast as Duale.
" Frankly, the majority leader needs to carry his own cross. He has for ages said that others do the same and now it is his turn," an MP from Nyeri said.
Another MP stated that she did not want to be seen to be taking sides in a matter which she describes as touchy.
" This is a touchy matter and to take sides would be dangerous. These are two people accused of taking part in corrupt deals," she said of Duale and Waiguru.
Duale has since said that the allegations by Waiguru are scandalous and must not be allowed to carry on any longer.
He says that he has never spoken about anything NYS with Waiguru and that she is looking for a way of spreading the NYS distress around.
