Duale was never going to name Shabaab names

25 May 2015, 15:41 William Korir

Nairobi - The revelation that Leader of Majority in Parliament Aden Duale would not name a list of Al Shabaab sympathizers was not a surprise, experts say.

Duale had promised Kenyans that he would name sympathizers of the Shabaab terror group who helped orchestrate the Garissa University Terror attack which saw 148 people killed.

He said that he would do so after a month.

The Garissa University College terror attack took place April 2, 2015 and a month later Duale, under pressure to release the list, stated that he would not release the list because he does not have one.

Kenyans have reacted with anger and disappointment at Duale's statement but political experts believe that the fact Duale has not released the lost was no surprise.

" It was not surprising, seeing as the pressure to name the list was too much to bear," Political analyst Michael Njenga says.

" Duale was never going to name the list. It is two things, there was either no list in the first place or the list if any, is unnameable".

" Chances are, he was forced to say something defensive to the government after the Garissa attack and he had to convince Kenyans the government was under control".

" Because lets be honest. If a person that grabbed a piece of land belonging to the Supreme Court cannot be named, who is Duale to name terror lords?

" They must be well protected in any case. My view though is that he said a reactionary statement and expected Kenyans to forget but they have not and now we have an issue at hand," he added.

Activists and members of the opposition have called on security organs to arrest Duale over his promise to name the terror sympathizers.
