Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has claimed that Garissa Township Member of Parliament Aden Duale is facing a strong backlash at home.
Speaking to members of the press on Monday, the outspoken governing Jubilee legislator said that the people of Garissa had rejected the leader of the majority in the National Assembly.
According to Kuria, the controversial intervention by Duale in the raging Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) debate was calculated to bolster his political prospects in Garissa.
"I say that of Duale, people whose political fortunes are dwindling back home. All this... is about Garissa people have rejected him, " the Gatundu South said. (4:44-4:59)
There have been claims that Aden Dulae's popularity is going down, claims that he has strongly rejected, saying that he is still the leader of the Somali people in northeastern Kenya.
Duale's call for a Westminster-style parliamentary system did not seat well with the Gatundu South legislator, who said that he would never support a system that takes power to elect the head of state from the people and gives it to elected legislators.
The Garissa Township MP had argued that a parliamentary system would give all communities in the country a chance to ascend to the presidency.
