The vocal legislator hails from Dujis in Garissa county, northern Kenya.

Donning a black Islamic robe and a turban, Duale cruised the fields with his massive herd as the Friday afternoon sun shone.

“Took my time off from the busy campaign and Parliamentary duties to relax at my rural farm on the outskirts of Garissa Town. It’s blissful to see the Boran cattle graze after the rains are over,” he wrote.

While Duale was relaxing on his farm, the Tanga Tanga brigade led by Deputy President William Ruto was in Roysambu, Nairobi county, where they advanced the bottom-up economic model talk.

Ruto faulted ODM leader Raila Odinga, his chief rival, for hijacking the big 4 agenda initially planned by the Jubilee administration.

The deputy president argued that the ODM chief had no capacity to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta as Kenya’s fifth president.

“Really, have we become short of leaders? Have we lacked a plan so that he (Raila) is imposed on us? He organised goons who stoned me in Kondele, we can’t elect such a leader. He has no agenda. We better go for that Kiosk seller to lead us than that guy. We better pick the Marurui Kiosk owner,” the deputy president told the electorate in Roysambu.

Herds of cattle ferried to Nakuru

In a separate story, at least 400 herds of cattle were rescued from the drought-ravaged parts of Gilgil and Longonot in Nakuru county to Makueni county for pastures.

On Saturday, January 15, the Kenya Railways Corporation (KRC) confirmed they ferried 311 heads of cattle and 89 calves on the early morning of Friday, January 14.

The animals were destined for Emali as a result of the prolonged dry spell that has affected livestock across the country in the past few months.

Each Kenya Railway wagon has a carrying capacity of 30 cows depending on the size and weight of the herd.

The parastatal re-introduced livestock transport services in May 2021 in a bid to help farmers move around their animals with ease.
