Just days after Machakos Governor Dr. Alfred Mutua asked National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi to replace Majority leader Aden Duale in the Division of revenue bill Mediation committee, Duale has responded guns blazing to the remarks.
Through his Twitter account, Duale dismissed Mutua as the face of ignorance and cheap publicity who Seeks to secure cheap publicity from a process happening in another arm of Government.
“Ukweli wa Mambo : The Facts. To Governor Mutua Dr. Alfred Mutua, the face of ignorance and cheap publicity has once again perfected his art of yapping. We know he wants to score cheap political publicity in another arm of Government.” Duale said.
Duale further scolded Governor Mutua that the Division of revenue bill was above his level of interpretation. The Garissa MP expressed concerns of the revenue collection in counties remaining minimal despite the counties being facilitated.
Compared to the local authorities Duale observed that the counties are collecting lesser revenue despite having more levies and rates for collection. This he says is attributable to lack of transparent and accountable revenue collection systems.
Mutua in a quick rejoinder said that Duale’s response was not befitting of a national leader. “By his ignorant and simplistic response to my humble and respectful request, it is clear Aden Duale is guilty as charged. His arrogance and negative mind are signs of a man whose actions are quickly catching up with him. His reply is not befitting a national leader. Shame on you.” Mutua responded.
