Members of Parliament from North Eastern region have thrown their weight behind their embattled colleague and Majority leader Hon. Aden Duale a day after he came under fire from colleagues who called for his resignation.
Addressing the press at Parliament buildings, the leaders reiterated their call to name financiers and sympathizers of Al-Shabaab in the region and the country at large adding that they have faith in Duale’s leadership.
This comes after more than 21 MPs allied to the Jubilee coalition called for Duale’s resignation if he failed to name the financiers and sympathizers of Al-Shabaab as he promised.
The group was led by the Chairman of the National Alliance (TNA) Jonson Sakaja, and Mukurwe-Ini MP Kabado wa Kabado.
Nep leaders now want the group to stop politicizing the war on terror and avoid dividing the country along tribal and religious lines as this would serve Al-Shabaab more than Kenya.
Majority leader Aden Duale on his part said that the statement he read after the Garissa University Attack was on behalf of all the MPs and governor from the region and not his personal.
He was speaking on KTN’s Jeff Koinange live program
