Joho has sued Sang and three MPs — Oscar Sudi, Kimani Ichung’wah and Didmus Barasa — for defamation.
Jubilee politicians led by Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi, Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung'wa and Sang had accused Joho of pedaling drugs in Mombasa, prompting him to file a law suit against them after asking them to apologise which they declined.
Early this month, Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho sued Sang, MPs Oscar Sudi, Kimani Ichung’wah and Didmus Barasa for allegedly spreading lies that he was a drug trafficker.
Joho had moved to court and sue MPs Oscar Sudi (Kapseret), Kimani Ichung'wa (Kikuyu), Didmus Barasa (Kimilili) and Nandi Governor Stephen Sang for defamation.
Jubilee politicians led by Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi and Nandi Governor Stephen Sang had accused the county boss of pedaling drugs in Mombasa prompting him to file a law suit against them.
Governor Joho had, through MM Advocates, written to Mr Kinoti and Director of Public Prosecution Nordin Haji seeking to know the true position after a group of Jubilee politicians led by Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi, all who are allied to the Deputy President William Ruto, accused him of engaging in the illegal trade.
The confirmation by the DCI that the claims about the Mombasa governor as a forgery is an interesting development given that he had sued his Nandi counterpart Joshua Sang', MPs Oscar Sudi, Kimani Ichung'wah and Didimus Baraza for linking him to the narcotics trade.
Nandi Governor Stephen Sang and Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi have sustained attacks on Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho, vowing to "cut him down to size" before the 2022 election.
Sang, MPs Oscar Sudi, Kimani Ichung’wah and Dismus Barasa have since been sued for slander.
The remarks forced Joho to issue an ultimatum to him and other leaders who included his Governor Stephen Sang, Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi and Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungwa.
