Wetang’ula wants Duale arrested to disclose Al Shabaab financiers

14 April 2015, 10:56 Ben Wafula

Bungoma-Senate minority leader, Moses Wetang’ula has called on the government to arrest the Parliament's majority leader Aden Duale over claims that he knew the people financing terrorism in the country.

Speaking in Webuye, Wetangula said that Duale might be knowing people who massacred 148 students at the Garissa University College, and should thus be arrested and investigated for his involvement in the Al Shabaab terror-related issues.

“He said that he was going to name those people supporting terrorism in the country in 30 days but we don’t want to wait for all those days; let the government arrest and force him to name those funding terrorism in the country so that we are safe in our daily chores,” said Wetang’ula.

The Garissa town Mp admitted that he knew people behind terrorism in the country and how their operations are being funded by some powerful people to cause fear, kill and maim innocent Kenyans.

However, the Ford Kenya party leader said that the government is reluctant to arrest and charge Duale even after disclosing openly that he knew them.

“If it was a leader from the opposition, they could have arrested and charged him long time ago,” he said.

The Bungoma Senator noted that for the sake of the Kenyan people, the majority leader should be apprehended so as to name those people associated with terrorism.

His sentiments were echoed by New Ford Kenya party leader, Eugene Wamalwa and Bungoma County woman rep, Reginalda Wanyonyi who called on the government to arrest the Garissa Township Mp so he could disclose the terrorists he was referring to.

“The government should speedily move in and arrest Duale. We can’t wait for one month to elapse because we would have buried and forgotten what befell our children in Garissa recently. It’s sad that a leader of his caliber can openly state that he knows those people funding militants yet he is not willing to name them,” said Wamalwa.

Wanyonyi on her part said that she will table a motion in Parliament this week that will force the government to arrest the majority leader for him to name the people financing terrorists.

They were speaking in Tongaren during the burial of one of the victims of the Garissa massacre.
