National Assembly Majority leader Aden Duale has expressed his interest to quit from national politics if Dr.William Ruto succeeds President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The outspoken Jubilee legislator has clearly stated that if Ruto becomes the next President, he will be willing even to serve as a mere clerk at the statehouse.

“I have said in the past, if William Ruto becomes President, I will retire from politics. I can even serve as a clerk in State House,” Duale stated.

Speaking to Hussein Mohammed on Citizen TV, Duale endorsed Ruto’s presidency arguing out that he is a strong politician whom he cannot abandon.

“DP Ruto is not the kind of person you abandon. He is a strong politician. I will support him in 2022,” Duale said.

The Garissa Town MP went on to declare that 2022 Presidential race would be between two horses, Raila Odinga and William Ruto.

“I can tell you for free. The presidential contest in 2022 will be between 2 people- William Ruto and Raila Odinga. I will be backing William Ruto,” Duale claimed.

Duale also reiterated that Jubilee Party will go into the next general elections more united than it was in 2017.

“We have one party leader- Uhuru Kenyatta. Jubilee is united. The President and his deputy are united. Jubilee will go into the next election more united than it was in 2017,” he assured Jubilee supporters.

Duale also found some time to rubbish the credentials of Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria as a Presidential candidate. He compared Kuria to a donkey in the race.

“In every election there are jokers. In 2022, it will be a 2-horse race. The rest are donkeys,” Duale insisted.
