Aden Duale dismisses suggestions ex-Mungiki leader joining UDA

by Nderi Caren

Garissa Township MP Aden Duale has dismissed suggestions to welcome ex-Mungiki leader Maina Njenga into UDA ahead of the 2022 General Election.

In an interview on NTV on Tuesday, December 7, Duale dismissed the suggestion by William Ruto to have Maina Njenga contest for the Laikipia Senatorial seat under UDA.

The former Majority leader termed the ex-Mungiki leader as a dangerous person, who should not be considered for an elective post.

“Maina Njenga and his militia Mungiki have no place in the legislature, they have no place in the politics and I want to see how the security agencies will deal with him after how he conducted himself today,” Duale said.

He further revealed that other political parties have been avoiding Maina Njenga in the past due to security concerns, so should the UDA party.

“I remember Maina Njenga was denied a ticket by President Kenyatta for in 2002 to run on KANU, he denied him a ticket of TNA in 2013 and even told us URP doesn’t give him a ticket. In 2017, he denied him a Jubilee ticket,” he said.

The Garissa Township MP said that Maina Njenga would only fit in the ODM party since it has violent people like him.

“But Maina Njenga is joining ODM, ODM has got a certain DNA of violence, I think he is in the right place he can go to Kasarani on Friday and join ODM but not UDA, we cannot allow him,” he said.

The ex-Mungiki leader has been blamed for the chaos that rocked William Ruto’s rally in Laikipia on Tuesday, December 7.

At the rally, William Ruto lectured Maina Njenga’s followers who had come to disrupt his rally.

Later on, the deputy President challenged Maina Njenga to join UDA and contest for the Laikipia Senatorial seat on the party’s ticket.
