The war of words between leaders from Deputy President William Ruto’s political camp and the opposition is far from over after Nandi governor Stephen Sang launches new attack.
The Nandi county boss, through a letter filed on Thursday by his advocate Dunstan Omari, wants the information to help him file a response to a defamation suit by Mombasa County Governor Ali Hassan Joho.
He has written to national and international security agencies seeking details of ownership of a 2014 drug consignment destroyed at the port of Mombasa.
“On or about 29th August 2014, the State under the supervision of the President, various Cabinet Secretaries, the Inspector General of Police blew up a luxury hatch referred to as Amin Darya or MV Alnoor that had been laden with 370.8 kilograms of heroin valued at Ksh.1.3 billion, this was a bold move to declare war against drugs trafficking,” read the letter.
Mr. Sang – in the letter addressed to Cabinet Secretaries Fred Matiang’i (Interior) Raychelle Omamo (Defense), and I.G Joseph Boinnet – questioned why the identities of the owners of the consignment in the ship were yet to be revealed.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigations wrote to Joho earlier informing him Interpol had found no reasons from investigations he is a drug baron and thus he was cleared of the investigations.
