Duale meets detectives over ‘fake’ audio, rival calls for his arrest

Leader of Majority in the National Assembly Aden Duale on Friday lodged a complaint with the police on an audio recording of him allegedly inciting youth from his constituency to violence.

Mr Duale filed the complaint at the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) headquarters on Kiambu road, dismissing the recording as fake propaganda.

He wants thepolice to investigate who recorded the clip and the venue of the alleged event.

Mr Duale, who is also Garissa Township MP, arrived at the DCI headquarters hours after his rival, former deputy Speaker Farah Maalim, had been at the same venue to petition police to charge and prosecute him.

The undated audio recording surfaced online on Thursday as a video with a picture of the majority leader. The voice in the clip is heard telling the youth in the constituency to cause violence targeted at a certain community.

In the clip, which was widely shared on social media, the speaker talks of concern about people from outside constituency registering as voters. He goes on to tell the youth to look for ‘unknown’ people during voter registration.
