Duale Blast Kalonzo Over Yatta Farm

Must read

Garissa Township MP Aden Duale has told Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka to clear himself with DCI over the acquisition of the Yatta farm without involving Deputy President William Ruto.

The former National Assembly Majority Leader said Kalonzo was trying to dodge the case by dragging other people into his tribulations.

Speaking when he donated cooking ware and other materials to women whose shops were razed by fire in Soko ngo’mbe Garissa Town, Duale told Kalonzo to explain himself to the detectives without shifting blame.

He said Kalonzo and ODM leader Raila Odinga had exhibited a high level of tribalism by appointing his son and brother respectively to the East African Legislative Assembly (EALA). 

The Garissa Town lawmaker told all those eying the presidency to prepare for a bruising battle in the August 2022 polls against Ruto. 

Last week Kalonzo visited the DCI offices along Kiambu Road, a move meant to prove his innocence and to pile pressure on Deputy President William Ruto to also appear before DCI to shed light on land grabbing claims against him.

The Wiper leader on Monday defended himself over claims by Ruto that he illegally acquired 200 acres of land belonging to the National Youth Service in Yatta, Machakos County.

Addressing a press conference in Nairobi, Kalonzo termed the claims as wild and desperate propaganda, describing himself as a person of “high moral and ethical standards.”

“I have nothing to hide and I challenge the authorities to open an investigation into this matter. I am today presenting myself for investigation by the DCI as well as the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission,” said Kalonzo after he appeared at the DCI.
