Has Duale been sued after donating expired Rice and Sugar to Ophans in his own Garrisa Township? DCI summoned the National Assembly Majority Leader and Ruto’s puppet Aden Duale for distributing expired foodstuffs at an orphanage in Garissa County.
Assistant Inspector-General of Police Benedict Oyaro summoned Duale to respond to complaints raised by Garissa residents over a donation of spoilt food.
“I do hereby require Aden Duale to personally appear before Mr Benedict Oyaro, an Assistant Inspector-General of Police investigating the alleged offence on 19th February at 10 am at DCI headquarters, Nairobi.”
The Garissa MP had visited Najah Children’s Home in Bulla Iftin, Garissa town, on Monday, the first time since he was elected as the area MP 15 years ago, and donated spoiled food to the center.
“He (Mr Duale) visited the orphanage on Monday. When we opened the food sacks, we saw some black substance which raised concern among us. It is then that we learnt that the food was expired,” said the source who works at the centre.
Orphanage manager Mohammed Noor confirmed that there were cartons of spoilt food. He said the food donation, including rice, flour and maize, was later destroyed at the centre. A contingent of police officers, public health, Kebs and Kenya Revenue Authority officials raided Mr Duale’s township CDF office.
Yesterday, however, Mr Duale claimed that he had not been summoned by DCI as the whole matter was just propaganda.
“The whole thing is fake, including the letter. You can go to Garissa and see it for yourself. I talked to the DCI himself and he said there is nothing. All I know is I was approached by members of the Bohra community to assist them in supplying foodstuffs.” He told Nation sources.
However, he admitted that Bohra community sent a communication to him that the food was indeed spoiled. What they had received was a deadstock.
