Aden Duale has been re-elected as the Member of National Assembly for Garissa Township.

The MP who was defending his seat on a United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party ticket was announced winner of the elective post on Thursday, August 11.

Duale garnered 9,905 votes against his main competitor of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) who came a distant second with 5,972 votes.

Taking to his Twitter page, the MP thanked his constituents for believing in him yet again and for the overwhelming support.

“Not because we were the best but we offered – in The Plan – viable remedies for the present challenges in Garissa Township Constituency. We won

“I want to, in a very special way, thank the people of Garissa Township who have believed in me for the past three and this fourth election, making our, ‘Ishirini bila Break’ mantra a reality. Thank you,” Duale wrote.

Duale also noted that he is willing to work with his opponents who, unfortunately, did not manage to beat him in the parliamentary race.

“For our competitors, this was a friendly match. We played clean issue-based and policy-driven politics. We remain friends and residents of Garissa Township,” he wrote.

Adding;

“From a clean heart, our team extends an invitation to our opponents to join us in sharing ideas that will make Garissa the apple of the Northern eye. Let our ‘Uninterrupted Twenty’ be remembered as a period of empowerment and development.”

Elsewhere, Duale suffered a blow after Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance presidential aspirant Raila Odinga garnered more votes in his backyard than his party leader Deputy President William Ruto.
