Nairobi - Aden Duale is to blame for the corruption case facing Garissa Governor Nadhif Jama, he has said.
The Governor, speaking after his summon by the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commision EACC Friday where he had gone to record a statement on allegations he has overseen corrupt deals in his County.
Jama is accused of irregularly leasing Ambulance vehicles belonging to the Kenya Red Cross.
He says that the allegations are baseless and accuses a Jubilee MP from Garissa of instigating the investigations against him.
" There is a Jubilee Member of Parliament from Garissa, with support of
his colleagues who are trying to undermine my governorship," he complained.
Jama is accused alongside seven other Garissa County officials.
He says that the political battles in Garissa will end with only one victor.
" There will be only one winner in this case and that will be me. I am ready to face my political detractors," he stated.
Jama was at the EACC to answer to the charges, which the Director of Public Prosecutions DPP has said will be pursued in court against the Governor.
If so, Jama will be the first Governor to have such a fate befall on him.
Jama was ccompanied by the chairman of the Council of Governors Peter Munya,
Wajir Governor Ahmed Abdullahi Mohammad and Wajir Senator Abdirahman
Hassan and former Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly Farah Maalim.
Duale, who is the leader of Majority in the National Assembly is also the Garissa Township MP.
