Outside the KICC building, Kimunya addressed some reporters and thanked Duale for serving as the National Assembly Majority Leader since 2013.
“I really want to thank Uhuru for proposing me to take over as the leader of the majority party in parliament. It’s humbling the confidence he’s shown as we work on these last two years (of Uhuru’s term). I also want to congratulate Adan Keynan, he’s taking over a position I got only two weeks ago. I did half the notes, he will do the other half. I don’t take this appointment lightly. It’s an honor to me,” Kimunya stated
Duale however declined to talk to reporters and instead promised to send a statement to newsrooms later in the day.
