Aden Duale has said he is not afraid of the ICC as he has been there several times.

The National Assembly Majority leader responded on Monday to Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka’s threat to take him there.

Kalonzo, who is Cord co-principal, said he would take Duale to ICC over an audio clip that went viral on social media.

In the clip, the person asks a group of youths to drive Kambas away and prevent them from registering as voters in Garissa.

But while addressing mourners at former Nominated MP Mark Too’s burial service in Eldoret, Duale said: “We will not be intimidated by people who want to take us back there.”

He said he had walked the international court’s 39 times, and “I know ICC in and out… I know the law and the prosecutors”.

The majority leader, who is also Garissa Town MP, said his enemies faked an audio clip to tarnish his name.

“They went out and made a clip to use against me,” he said, noting he had asked the CID to look into the audio.

Kalonzo threatened to write to the ICC over Duale’s purported incitement remarks.

He said it was contradictory for Duale to claim Jubilee was fighting tribalism yet the widely-circulated recording is of someone inciting youths to attack the Kamba community in Garissa as the August 8 polls near.

Duale dismissed the clip as “concocted propaganda” and said it was corrupted. He recorded a statement at the DCI a day later.
