Nairobi - A Jubilee member of Parliament has vowed to never recognize Aden Duale as the Majority Leader in the National Assembly over what he termed as Duale's interference in his constituency affairs.
Nakuru East member of Parliament, David Gikaria accused Duale of pushing for his arrest and prosecution over his involvement in the destruction of a private property owned by a Somali businessman in Nakuru town.
Speaking on Monday after he was arraigned in court, Gikaria accused Duale of calling the Director of Public Prosecutions and directing him to ensure that he (Gikaria) is prosecuted.

"Duale picked his phone and called the DPP and gave him instructions to prosecute me just because he wanted to protect a land grabber who is from his community," said Gikaria.
"From today I want to state clearly that I don't recognise Duale as my Majority Leader and I will never recognize him as such," said Gikaria.
"He has his constituency and that is where he should focus on instead of involving himself in issues within Nakuru East and he should be told that Nakuru has it's owners and we will protect our property," he said.
Gikaria alongside four other people were Monday charged for destruction of private property. They are accused of pulling down a perimeter wall on a property owned by the NSE company in Nakuru town
