Majority leader and Garissa Township MP Aden Duale has opened up on why he snubbed the Garissa BBI rally that was held on Sunday 23rd February 2020.
The rally was held right at the doorstep of the vocal legislator who failed to turn up at the event that was marred by chaos from supporters of Governor Ali Korane and his rival Nadhif Jama.
Well, during an interview with NTV, Duale said that he saw no meaning of supporting and attending the BBI ‘nonsense’ that had been hijacked by political leaders at the expense of interests of Kenyans.
Duale further maintained his stand that he would only attend the BBI rallies if President Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto attended the events together.
“When I hear the reggae can’t stop, I look at the interests of my people, I see the rhythm and then make a decision. That is why you see the difference between me and some political leaders. I just don’t play into any reggae. If we don’t stop what is happening in the BBI rallies then by mid-March the country will be divided,” said Duale.
Duale further dismissed allegations that he skipped the BBI rally due to his differences with Garissa Governor Ali Korane who was the main man in charge of the whole event in Garissa.
He insisted that there was no bad blood or supremacy battle between him and Governor Korane, as he vehemently supported him in the previous elections as a member of the Jubilee Party.
“I supported Korane and he is a member of Jubilee. Him being in charge of the BBI initiative in Garissa is a small position. He is the governor of Garissa and is expected to deliver on county matters. On my side, I am the leader of majority and MP for Garissa Township,” said Duale.
