The Suna East MP claimed that Duale was angry after the huge reception CORD got recently in his Garissa town constituency.
Junnet said it was disheartening that a fellow Muslim would order for his arrest during the holy month of Ramadan.
“This should not have been done to me in the month of Ramadan since in Islam this is a month of cessation and ceasefire, but someone of my own faith decided to go the other way. Allah is watching him,” Junnet said.
Junnet Mohammed in court together with other accused CORD leaders.
Junnet Mohamed was arrested dramatically on the morning of Tuesday, June 14, when Flying Squad officers surrounded Nation center where the legislator had been hosted for an interview.
It was only after the intervention of Siaya Senator James Orengo and Homa Bay Town MP Peter Kaluma who demanded that Junnet be driven in their car.
Junnet was later charged with hate speech and incitement and with Machakos Senator Johnstone Muthama, MPs Timothy Bosire (Kitutu Masaba), Ferdinand Waititu (kabete), Moses Kuria (Gatundu South), Kimani Ngunjiri (Bahati), Aisha Jumwa (Kilifi) and Florence Mutua (Busia) were held in custody until Friday, June 17, when they got released on bond.
