Barely a month after Interpol denied claims that Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho was on its radar over drug trafficking in the Coast region and outside the country, Nandi Governor Stephen Sang now wants the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji to investigate him.
Sang, a close ally of Deputy President William Ruto, wants Joho and his brother summoned over the sale of drugs as well as money laundering.
In a letter dated February 28, 2019, seen by the Standard, Sang wants Haji to probe the ODM Deputy Leader alongside his brother Abubakar Joho with immediate effect.
According to Sang, Joho is working against President Uhuru Kenyatta after Uhuru declared war against the business.
The county boss insisted that Joho was mentioned in the US Embassy Kenya report as one of the most feared drug lords after he was first elected into parliament.
“Joho became major drug lord mainly after he was elected MP in 2007," reads part of the letter.
Sang, through lead Counsel Paul Musyimi, insists that he has evidence to prove his claims.
The suit came after Joho demanded that Sang and MPs Oscar Sudi (Kapseret) and Kimani Ichung'wa (Kikuyu) came forth with their guns after the Coastal kingpin claimed that ODM Leader Raila Odinga has a plan to block Ruto from succeeding Uhuru in 2022.
