I came, I saw and I conquered were the words of the former National Assembly Majority leader Aden Duale as he left an office he served for the last 7 years.
Duale who was the first occupant of the office of Majority leader after its creation by the new constitution dispensation, says he was glad to have steered the agenda of the Majority Party effectively, and in particular overseeing the passage of over 200 bill and 500 motions.
“I am particularly proud that during my years’ service, I was also able to ensure that all the Bills for implementation of the Constitution, financial legislation to implement devolution and provide services to the people of Kenya and Bills to implement the Big Four Agenda were enacted”, Duale stated.
Duale who claim the office was not an easy task to run, thanked President Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto for the opportunity they accorded him to serve Kenyans in the position.
“I indeed thank my party leader H.E Uhuru Kenyatta, for having given me the opportunity to serve the great people of Kenya and for this I am grateful. I equally thank the Deputy President, the entire jubilee members of parliament and my family for their support during this period”, Duale added.
Duale cautioned leaders against personalizing public positions saying that he leaves the office with a smile for a job well done.
“But like I have said before, public positions are not to be personalized. When you are given a position you do your best and when time comes for you to leave, you leave with a smile… I am glad that today, I leave with a smile, being proud of what I was able to achieve”, he said.
He congratulated Kipipiri MP Amos Kimunya on his new appointment saying he will now focus on building a great future with his Garissa Town constituents.
Duale was on Monday June 22, removed as the Majority leader and his role handed over to Kipipiri MP Amos Kimunya.
The decision came following a Jubilee Party Parliamentary Group Meeting attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto.
