Garissa Township MP-elect Aden Duale has said that he is getting old in the corridors of Parliament.

Duale who will be serving his fourth term spoke on Thursday ahead of the swearing-in of members of the National Assembly and the Senate.

“I have been here, this is my fourth term. I am now an MP-elect in accordance with Article 74 of the Constitution. Once I’m sworn in I’ll become a state office,” he said.

The legislator said he was happy that most people who served as MPs in the 12th and 11th Parliament have been retained.

Duale said it will be a robust Parliament.

The 13th Parliament will have its first sitting on Thursday.

The first order of business after taking their oaths of office will be to elect the speakers of both houses of Parliament.

Duale was first elected MP in 2007 under the Orange Democratic Movement party.

In 2013 he retained his seat under the United Republican Party (URP) and in 2017 under the Jubilee Party.
