Garissa Township  MP Aden Duale has remained silent on the growing rift that is threatening to tear apart the ruling Jubilee Party.

The National Assembly Leader of Majority has not been seen in public or attended press briefings by his colleagues to talk about the growing rift brought about by the 2022 succession politics.

Duale’s silence is now a matter of concern owing to his close relationship with Deputy President William Ruto who is the subject of the 2022 succession politics in Jubilee Party.

According to Peter Ngure, a Kiambu based political analyst, Duale’s silence on the Jubilee rift raises suspicions.

The analyst observes that the Garissa MP is among ardent and vocal supporters of the Jubilee Party and his silence signals something.

“His silence is suspicious but I think he is silent on directions from his party bosses (President Uhuru Kenyatta and DP Ruto), the analyst said when reached for comment on Thursday.

Ngure said that as National Assembly Majority leader, Duale serves the interests of all politicians in the ruling Jubilee Party hence cautious in responding to the party’s rifts.

The analyst, however, notes that Duale’s silence could be strategic and aimed at cooling down the situation in the party.

He also observes that Duale could be carefully studying the political environment before reacting to the growing rift.

The political storm in Jubilee Party was started by former chairman David Murathe.

Murathe fueled the rift when he asked DP Ruto to retire alongside President Kenyatta in 2022.

The former Jubilee Vice chairman has even threatened to file a case in Supreme Court to block DP Ruto’s 2022 presidential bid.
