The Embattled National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale who was relinquished his duties today and his position taken by Kipipiri MP Amos Kimunya has finally spoken.
In a message he wrote on his Twitter account says;
“Today marks the end of my seven years of service to the great people of Kenya as the Leader of Majority of the National Assembly.
I was the first occupant of the seat under article 108 of the constitution.
I am particularly proud that during my 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.
This was not an easy task but one which required that I work with everyone, be it foe or friend and in the end and with the help of Allah, I delivered.
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.
You can however only leave with a smile if during your years of service, you executed your duties with zeal, diligence and dedication. I am glad that today, I leave with a smile, being proud of what I was able to achieve.
Finally, to my brother Hon. Kimunya, permit me to congratulate you for your new appointment.
Finally, I wish to thank all Kenyans for their support and in particular the great people of Garissa who I now look forward to continue working with for a great future.
As the first Leader of Majority Party in the Constitution of Kenya 2010, I can now pen down this for history and record. ”
I came, I saw and I conquered.
God bless Kenya.
Signed: Hon.Aden Duale, EGH, MP.
Duale Will be remembered for serving as the Leader of Majority in the National Assembly since the Jubilee government came into power and he has defended it up to the last day in his office.
