Garissa Town MP Aden Duale has laid bare a series of intricate conversations between him, President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto.
Duale admitted that he had been a sycophant for the duo but noted that the last three years had given him character development to know the reality of betrayal in politics.
The MP noted that he had blindly believed in the UhuRuto agenda but was now a cautious politician – noting that he now believes that even the DP, whose presidential bid he supports would also betray him eventually – just like all the other politicians who have double-crossed their allies.
The former National Assembly Majority leader wrote for the Nation on Sunday, September 26, comparing how President Uhuru Kenyatta betrayed Ruto and his confidants.
“Do not trust anyone in politics. Do not trust the journey he walks with you. Do not trust where he places you. Politics in Kenya is synonymous with betrayal, deceit, humiliation, backstabbing, and throwing people under the bus.
“At any time, if a politician, tells you to close your eyes so he can pray for you, keep one eye open. Raila betrayed Ruto in 2007 and Uhuru betrayed Ruto between 2018 and 2022. I have seen it all, so the only thing remaining for me is to see if William Ruto will betray me. But I think if we will keep playing politics, he will betray me and that’s the truth,” Duale stated.
He added that he often questions Ruto’s motive and end goal, despite supporting the DP’s 2022 presidential campaign.
“Every day when sitting with him, I tell him, “My friend when you go to State House, I do not think you will be different from Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga. You will also betray me,” Duale wrote.
