Hon Duale was elected to parliament in 2007 to represent the people of Dujis Constituency now Garissa township constituency. He vied and won on an ODM ticket.

He did this behind the wishes of former Chief of General Staff Mohamud Mohamed who was perceived as a king maker in the North Eastern Province and also doubled as his father-in-law.

In April 2008, he was appointed as an Assistant Minister for Livestock. He has served in other crucial roles and especially in the new constitution where he served as the North Eastern Province ‘YES’ Team Leader.

He was also the ODM National Vice Chairman in Political Affairs until 2011 when he differed in policy matters with his party leadership. In 2011, he parted ways with ODM leadership and followed H.E Ruto to form the united Republican Party – URP.

Later URP joined hands with President Uhuru Kenyatta’s TNA to form the Jubilee Coalition which successfully won the 2013 General Elections.

Hon Duale is a founder member of the United Republican Party and a key member of the G7 Leadership. Duale has proclaimed that he is William Ruto’s political student. He is a die-hard supporter of William Ruto and President Uhuru Kenyatta.

He was once quoted in several occasions that he can take a bullet for the President and his Deputy.

Due to his high bargaining power and being very vocal he was elected the Majority leader of the Kenya National Assembly.

His democratic support to jubilee government also brought a lot of goodies to his constituents especially from national governments shares.

Truly speaking the writing is on the wall.

It’s under Duale's regime that...

>The first national grid connectivity is in Garissa town today.

>First time ever Garissa professionals are overwhelmingly appointed in government’s commissions and parastatals

>It’s under Duale's regime that Garissa town roads are tarmacked and its vicinity.

>It’s under duale's regime that Kenyan Somalis have freedom and negotiated democracy.

>It’s Hon duale who precipitated the appointments of government Somali ministers and other high government officials.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat" the famous quote in the speech of citizenship in the republic.
