Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko on Sunday, angrily attacked National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale over funds.
The governor was speaking at Alladina Grounds in Jomvu, Mombasa County, where he led Team Wanjiku in a rally, alongside Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria hit out at Duale for advising cutting of funds to Counties but silently pushing MPs to demand more pay.
“I want to tell Aden Duale that hii pesa ya devolution si pesa ya mama yako (devolution funds do not belong to your mother); Si pesa ya ngamia zako uko Garissa (The devolution funds do not belong to your camels in Garissa),” Sonko ranted amid cheers from the audience.
The governor further accused Duale of spearheading the salary increment plot by MPs.
“Duale, you are my friend. However, you are fighting for salary increment yet Garissa residents are suffering. They do not have water, the roads are poor too. If you continue with such an inhuman soul, in 2022 you will herd your camels without wearing an underwear!
He added: “Iinstead of increasing your salary, release those funds to assist us in implementing devolution. We are even calling upon President Uhuru Kenyatta to resolve that issue,” Sonko protested.
Sonko was responding to Duale’s earlier allegations that governors squander money allocated to their counties by the national government.
“Duale should read the constitution and understand it well. He should release the funds for allocation immediately, so that the youth fight against poverty,” Sonko explained.
