The National Assembly majority leader Hon Aden Duale called both the President and his deputy on their hotline numbers and bluntly told them Jubilee party will lose Malindi byelection even if Statehouse is moved to Kilifi.
”Your excellence hapa ni Raila tu, sioni tukipata even 40%”- Duale was heard complaining at Malindi Airport as he waited for almost 4 hours for traffic to clear as ODM supporters flooded the roads in Malindi town
Hon Duale also told the president it was a bad idea to poach Hon Kazungu, now CS for Mining ” ata afdhali tunge-appoint Hon Onyonka, we won two by-elections in Kisii, uko tuko na profile, hapa ni ngumu boss”
Hon Duale was dispatched by Statehouse to lead a high powered delegation from Nairobi to accompany Jubilee candidate for Malindi by-election Mr Philip Charo to present his papers to the IEBC.
Earlier Hon Duale had been forced to stay at the Malindi Airport for close to three hours yesterday as the route from the airport to the lavish Malindi Hotel was occupied by a sea of humanity(ODM supporters) who turned up to give PM Raila Odinga a super warm welcome.
Later Duale addressed hundrends of hired Jubilee supporters who travelled as far as Lamu and Kongowea market in Mombasa to attend, hired buses were used to ferry supporters from Kongowea mostly hawkers some who resorted to picking goods to sale back in Mombasa.
