“Audits Say 52 MPs Got NYS Contracts, Not Our Duale.” – Garissa Elders

A good number of elders and leaders from Garissa have taken it upon themselves to stand up against the accusers of National Assembly majority leader Aden Duale.

The Garrissa elders slammed a section of elders and leaders from Central region, demanding for immediate resignation of Garissa Township MP.

Waiguru, in her affidavit, accused Duale of advising ex NYS deputy director Aden Harakhe to be more concerned about gaining political protection rather than being manipulated by “the other side.”

In a press conference in Garissa town, the leaders, led by Dubat Hamey, disconnected Duale from the far-reaching scandal and noted that the “gentle man” had done nothing to receive such allegation.

According to Dubat

It should be noted that Duale was not the tenderer, and his relatives were not involved in any procurement programmes within NYS.

The truth of the matter is that he only told Harakhe to go slow on whatever he was doing and seek political support. He only issued a cautionary statement.

In complete disappointment, Hamey accused those urging for Duale to resign and dump his work, describing such politicians as being “very myopic.”

The Garrissa elder added that Duale’s critics aren’t only shallow thinkers but also have no knowledge of politics and misappropriation of fund.

The elders blamed some individuals of plotting profound wicked and immoral scheme to bring division among Jubilee administration. They called on the coalition to remain united and not to fall for the detrimental and dark plan.

The heated disagreement so far over the actual robbers of the missing Sh791 million from the NYS has been re-stirred up by businesswoman Josephine Kabura and former Devolution CS Anne Waiguru after their latest testimonial affidavit submitted in court.

Kabura filed an affidavit and described Waiguru as the architect of the scandal while the former CS submitted a counter affidavit

Kabura is allegedly the prime suspect in the NYS scandal.

Duale had lashed at the two affidavits, describing them as weapons formed with intend to distract the country. He said the two “are not of help to the country.”

He suggests that Kenya needs to stay united and urges all politicians to seek to bring togetherness in the society.

Both Duale and Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen have greatly dismissed any involvement in the fraud.

There is a report that PAC Audit had found out that about 52 MPs were connected to the NYS saga after it was revealed that they got profitable tenders for often shoddy construction of Huduma Centres. Not much details have been gotten on that but it is hopeful to emerge soon.
