Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen has waded into the drug trafficking debate which has seen allies of Deputy President William Ruto trade barbs with those of Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho.
The war of words ensued after Nandi Governor Stephen Sang and MPs Kimani Ichung'wah (Kikuyu), Didmus Barasa (Kimilili) and Kapseret's Oscar Sudi claimed Joho was a drug dealer who should be brought to book.
The allegations, however, were dismissed by Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) MPs led by Minority Whip Junet Mohamed who accused the Jubilee politicians of a smear campaign against the outspoken governor.
They claimed Ruto was behind the allegations which have seen the four leaders taken to court for slander.
Murkomen, DP's confidant, has asked his Jubilee colleagues not to surrender in their fight against narcotics which he noted deserved backing of all leaders.
"War against drug cartels must be supported by Kenyans from all the political divides," the Elgeyo Marakwet Senator said on Sunday in a message addressed to Sudi.
Speaking during a service at St. Thomas Catholic Church in Cheptiret, the Kapseret legislator vowed to continue fighting Joho until he quits the illegal trade and offers apologies to the nation.
"Even if you have gone to court to sue us, unless you come publicly and tell Kenyans in front of cameras that you won't sell drugs again that is when we will stop attacking you, if not, we will fight you to the end," Sudi said on Sunday.
