ADEN DUALE WIFE
He is married with five sons
question : Is it true that you are married to the daughter of retired General Mahmoud Mohammed?
Yes. The retired general is my father-in-law. Dowry is not prohibitive in our community. I only paid four cows for my wife. I have five sons, with the eldest in university, and the youngest in kindergarten. I love my family so much; I make sure I never get home later than 8pm in the evening.
After my last prayer in the office at around 6pm, I pass through the Parliament bar for a little chit-chat with colleagues over a bottle of soda. I then go home where I must eat dinner prepared and served by my wife at 8pm. This has been the case since we got married. I usually take vegetables and meat for dinner. I don’t eat lunch, unless I have a lunch appointment. I only take fruits and a bottle of Fanta Orange during the day. I never take tea or carbohydrates after four since I am watching my weight.
Aden duale: You say you are better off being a sycophant of a sitting president than a sycophant of somebody not in power. Are you a sycophant?
My history proves that I am no sycophant. I only strongly support what I believe in. I joined politics in 2008 and midway in 2009, I differed with ODM on principle, after they failed to honour their pledges. I left and formed a new party – URP. ODM took me to court and I incurred Sh10 million in legal fees. That’s how principled I am. But if defending Jubilee and President Uhuru Kenyatta will earn me the tag ‘sycophant’, then you can go ahead and write, Aden Barre Duale, the sycophant of Uhuru Kenyatta.
