An audio record has emerged of Jubilee Party Member of Parliament inciting his electorate to get rid of a tribe from their home town.

In the audio, Duale is heard calling for the mobilization of youth to get rid of the Kamba people because they are outsiders and cannot be allowed to vote in Garissa.

In the audio Duale is heard saying:

“Kambas, start with them today. You are residents. Tell them to build their houses but they should not dare bring their Wiper politics here.

“Warn them that they will not cross the Tana bridge into Garissa on voting day. We will be waiting for them. 15 to 16 voter registration starts. I want you to mobilize youth to every polling station. I will not allow any matatu ferrying people you don’t know to register as voters. We own this town, not outsiders. Mobilize five to six youth to every polling station day and night. I will pay for their needs and protect them.

“I have warned the area chief against allowing those matatus ferrying them. You will be assisted by law enforcement authority to chase them away as I have instructed.

“We will have a sit down with the county commander na watu wa CID wajuane (they can know each other). You should stand strong and fearless at all wards and if you are arrested for violence, you will be released. I will pay your bills and other costs,”

Garissa is dominated by Kenyan Somalis.

Duale’s radical plans could have been inspired by Farah Maalim’s recent decamping to Wiper Party from ODM.

Maalim is planning to unseat Duale in the upcoming 2017 General Election. He already has clan backing and the Kamba community could provide the swing vote to win the race.

Duale is known to speak his mind without filtering his words. He speaks boldly, daring to say things that would never be said in public.
