“Start with the Kambas today, tell them to come to this town to build houses but should not dare bring Wiper here and tell other Kambas we are waiting them the voting day, you will not cross the Tana River Bridge”. says Duale in the recording.

He then instructs an aide to mobilize youth, five of them at each polling station to keep vigil against the importation of voters.

“Do not allow any matatu ferrying people you don’t know to register as voters. I want five youth to keep an eye on the registration day and night, I provide for their upkeep” says Duale instructing the youth to turn away any such vehicle.

“I will meet the County Commander, OCPD and the CID…even this County commissioner (of Kamba descent), I dared him to try bring Kambas politics here” he adds.

Duale tells assures the youth that he will stand with them and will even secure their release in case they were arrested. He also assures to pay their family bills during the assignment.
