Garissa Township Member of Parliament Aden Duale has finally lifted the lid asking President Uhuru Kenyatta to honor their gentlemen deal and pay the late former Kibwezi MP Kalembe Ndile his dues.
The former majority leader asked the head of state to pay the sum 6 Million Kenya shillings owed to the independent Tip Tip party leader Kalembe Ndile.
While addressing the parliament on Tuesday June 8, 2021, the DP Ruto allied legislator stated that Jubilee is obligated to pay the amount as it won the elections and formed a government.
Duale explained that Ndile was owed the sum of money because Tip Tip was one of the parties that was folded to form the Jubilee party, with Kalembe dying while he kept asking for the money.
“Hon. Kalembe kept asking for 6 million for folding his party,”
He asked the National Assembly majority leader Amos Kimunya and the Party Whip Emmanuel Wangwe to pick the debt note and ensure they delivered the Ksh6 million to Kalembe family.
Kalembe passed on late last month on May 30, 2021, with plans currently underway to lay him to rest at his Mbui Nzau home in Makueni County.
Duale also took time to pass his message of condolence to the former departed colleague’s family at this trying times.
His sentiments however did not auger so well with the ODM chairman John Mbadi who took him head on stating that it was improper for the legislator to involve Kenyans in a political negotiation by political parties.
“Is he in order to imply that Kenyan taxpayers’ money should be used to settle debts that are owed by political parties or friends of political parties?” Mbadi questioned.
