MPs Alfred Keter, Justice Kemi tell Duale off
16 February 2015, 15:48
Nairobi - Two Rift valley MPs have told off National Assembly Majority Leader, Aden Duale over his foul language and constant attacks on leaders from the region.
The MPs, Alfred Keter (Nandi Hills) and Justice Kemei (Sigowet/ Soin), said Duale should stop using unsavoury words and maternal slurs in attacking Rift Valley leaders.
While addressing a meeting in his constituency a week ago, Duale used expletives while telling off Knut secretary general, Wilson Sossion, whom he accused of misleading teachers to boycott classes in North Eastern and yet 'normalcy has been restored' in the area.
“Hawa walimu sio wa Mama ya mtu. Sossion walimu wa Kenya si Mama Yako!(Teachers in this country do not belong to anybody’s mother. Sossion these teachers do not belong to your mother!),” said the Garrisa town legislator.
Bomet Governor, Isaac Ruto a year ago was the on the receiving end of Duale's choice expletives. Ironically, both Ruto and Sossion hail from the same Bomet County in Rift Valley.

Speaking to journalists over the weekend after officially opening Sigowet Secondary School, Kemei and Keter warned that Duale’s loose tongue may cost the Jubilee government votes in the coming election.
“We are shocked that our colleague in parliament, who hails from the same URP party as us continues to hurl insults at leaders from Bomet County and nothing is being done. He should stop immediately before our people reconsider their political stand,” warned Keter.
“Duale should respect leaders and all Kenyans across the country so as not to allow room for enmity and hatred. He should know that Bomet County and rift valley leaders won’t tolerate any more insults touching on our mothers from him,” said Kemei.
