With Jubilee Party literally on fire amid plans by a section of the party's powerful forces to block Deputy President William Ruto from succeeding President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022, Garissa Township MP Aden Duale, has dismissed claims that Uhuru and his deputy don't see eye to eye and that the fallout of the giant party is on the cards.

After one week of political madness within the ruling party which was set in motion by former Vice Chairman David Murathe, Jubilee s facing an acid test even as Duale maintains that the party is still intact and that Uhuru and Ruto are enjoying a cordial relationship.

“The President and his deputy enjoy a warm relationship that dates back to over two decades, and those who think otherwise are hoping that their cordial friendship would wane so that they can take advantage, they will wait for long,” National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale said as quoted by the Standard.

With the Uhuru and Ruto camps emerging and trading political barbs, it remains to be seen if Duale's statement will control the damage that Jubilee Party has suffered going into 2022 elections.

Will Duale's sentiment steady the sinking Jubilee ship? Well, only time will tell.
