Thursday September 26, 2019-National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale was among dozens of North Eastern and Northern Kenya leaders who met Deputy President William Ruto at Karen on Tuesday.

This comes even as questions have been raised over Duale's commitment towards Ruto's 2022 presidential quest, with the Majority Leader taking a back seat and not participating in rallies sponsored by the DP.

Also present at Karen were Governors Josephat Nanok of Turkana and John Longanyapuo. In recent weeks, the two have also reduced their attention towards Dr Ruto's bid.

But for Duale, he seems to be speaking from different script from that of the DP, backing constitutional changes which he insists that must support creation of parliamentary system of government.

The Garissa Town MP recently insisted that his support towards Raila Odinga's constitutional push was unstoppable, adding that the current presidential system discriminates minority groups.

"We as members of the pastoral community want to tell our Kenyan brothers to let's embrace a parliamentary system for Kenya to be led by a Prime Minister," the National Assembly majority leader said.

On the other hand, Ruto has come out guns blazing against constitutional changes, arguing that such a move is meant to benefit just a few politicians.
