As the long-gestating crisis in Jubilee triggered by Murathe's controversial remarks continues apace, the question in many people's minds is where is Duale?
The outspoken legislator has uncharacteristically taken a low profile.
His silence is especially curious given that he is a close ally of Deputy President William Ruto whose presidential ambitions are threatened by Murathe's camp.
Duale has been known to be quick to weigh in on trending political topics but this time he appears to be taking his time.
He has chosen instead to nourish his spiritual life.
As the year started, he posted a photo of himself praying and called on Kenyans to seek God's forgiveness.
He is also spending quality time with his family.
It would be interesting to see what intervention the Garissa lawmaker will make moving forward and what implication it will have on the unity of the governing party.
