Monday August 12, 2019 - Leader of Majority in Parliament, Aden Duale, has asked Deputy President William Ruto to shelve his 2022 presidential ambitions and concentrate on the position of Prime Minister which will be created in case Kenyans go for a referendum.
Although the draft on impending changes is yet to come out, all indications are that the country could be headed for a Parliamentary system of Government which will be headed by Prime Minister.
Speaking on Sunday, Duale said he will lobby to ensure both President Uhuru Kenyatta and DP William Ruto support the parliamentary system, a current view held by Raila Odinga.
“I am going to convince the President and Deputy President and membership of Jubilee Party to support the parliamentary system,” Duale said.
A staunch supporter of DP Ruto, Duale's change of heart could further throw Dr Ruto out of balance, forcing him to change strategy.
Ruto and his lieutenants currently support Punguza Mzigo campaign by Third Way Alliance party leader, Dr Ekuru Aukot, instead of Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) sponsored by Raila Odinga and Uhuru Kenyatta.
