Keep off Rift Valley affairs, Jubilee leaders to Duale
North Rift political leaders have asked National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale to keep off the region’s political affairs.
Led by Uasin Gishu County Governor Jackson Mandago, the North Rift leaders claimed Duale has been “insulting leaders from the region and purporting to be in position to organise politics of the region.”
Mandago, accompanied by Kapseret legislator Oscar Sudi, Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter and Uasin Gishu County Assembly speaker Isaac Terer spoke in Burnt Forest area in Uasin Gishu County on Friday, December 16.
MP Sudi claimed that Duale’s utterances have been painting Jubilee Party in a bad light, leading to decline in support for the outfit across the country.
The North Rift leaders have asked Duale to confine his politics to Garisa County, adding that he should leave leaders from the Kalenjin community to deal with their political troubles.
Governor Mandago said Rift Valley leaders are able to facilitate the process of arriving at a cordial deal between the government and the region’s ‘rebel’ political figures such as Baringo Senator Gideon Moi and Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto ahead of the 2017 general election.
